Free Nutrition & Wellness
Classes & Tours

This coming season it’s all about healthy mamas and babies, gluten-free goodness, and eating well without breaking your budget.

In honor of Celiac Awareness Month, May will feature Gluten-Free Food Fairs at several stores as well as various classes and tours with a gluten-free focus.

Are you expecting or hope to be someday soon?  Throughout April, May and June we’re offering store tours focused on maternal nutrition at five of our stores.  You’ll learn about healthy diets prior to conception, while you’re eating for two, and after your little one is born.

On a tight grocery budget? Join us for a store tour that highlights budget conscious, nutrient-dense food choices. You’ll go home with new ideas and change to spare.

In addition to our New Seasons Market nutritionists, we have a record number of classes offered by outside practitioners. Take a minute to explore our Spring Wellness Schedule and register for a class or tour today.

All classes and tours are free. Register now. Here’s how:

Anti-inflammatory series

Did you miss out on the anti-inflammatory series we held in January? You’re in luck: We’re hosting another series at our Concordia location in NE Portland and at Nyberg Rivers, right off I-5 in Tualatin. 

From arthritis to autoimmune conditions, uncontrolled inflammation is an underlying factor in a number of chronic disorders. This three-part series goes beyond the basics of navigating a dietary approach to addressing chronic inflammation.

In the meantime, whip up a pot of soy-free miso soup, packed with probiotics and minerals. Although the soup is often eaten for breakfast in Asia, enjoy it anytime you want to boost your beneficial bacteria. These friendly belly bugs colonate your intestines and help keep your immune system functioning at its best—and it’s a good thing they do: a healthy gut is your first defense against inflammation.
