The pleasure of visiting Urbanweeds doesn't stop there; a cup or pot of tea can be chosen from a selection listed on a chalkboard behind the check-out counter, to drink while you shop. If you opt for the pot, you can sit at the brushed-steel display table or outdoor furniture for sale in the shop's airy, indoor-outdoor space.
Open for almost exactly one year in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood, the store has worked to give back to the local community via a benefit program that will donate up to 25% of sales on a given day. Urbanweeds also stocks products from local artists and designers, like these (purely decorative) glass slugs, below.
One of the most impressive things about Urbanweeds — and why it'll be a regular stop on our Fremont shopping circuit — is that even with all the hip bells-and-whistles, Urbanweeds is a serious plant store, with healthy foliage and well-tended succulents. Their online store is well worth a gander, too.
