[VEGGIES FOR VEGANS] Proper Eats feels like a henna- and hemp-built food cooperative: There's a kitchen and cafe attached, and regular events include saved-seed swaps and open-mic nights. The small market up front carries a good amount of bulk foods—spices, flours, grains, cereals and liquids—along with produce, packaged foods and a small amount of household supplies. It's not a one-stop shop unless you're a monastic vegan, but there's a lot of good food—especially local, organic produce. The cafe in the back is all about tastyvegetarian food along with kombucha and wine.

Grocery list: Jujubes, rhubarb, It's Alive! kraut, bulk spices, green cleaning supplies.
