Not your everyday grocery run! Hillary Clinton was spotted shopping for her Thanksgiving meal with her family at the Chappaqua Village Market near her home in Chappaqua, New York, on Wednesday.

The former Democratic presidential candidate – who lost to Republican President-Elect Donald Trump in a shocking upset on November 8 – was busy grabbing a few last-minute items when she stopped to take a selfie with Brittany Valente, who shared their snap to Instagram.

The former Secretary of State was with her husband, former president Bill Clinton, their daughter, Chelsea, and grandson Aidan, and picked up turkey, cranberry sauce and stuffing, Valente told WNBC News.

“Ran into Hill and Bill at the local market,” Valente captioned their selfie. “Met their grandson Aiden [sic], cutest little guy ever.”

“They were so relaxed and shopping for Thanksgiving dinner at the local village market," she told WNBC. "They were so nice talking to everyone, wishing them happy holidays, and at one point Hillary said, 'We must stay strong together no matter what. Thank you for your support.'"

Clinton’s casual shopping trip is the first sighting of the former New York senator since she gave an emotional address at a Children’s Defense Fund event in Washington, D.C., on November 16. In her first remarks since her concession speech, Clinton admitted that her election loss had been devastating.

“There have been a few times this past week where all I wanted to do was curl up with a good book and our dogs and never leave the house again,” she said, adding that being there that evening “wasn’t the easiest thing.”

But Clinton urged her supporters to keep fighting for their beliefs, despite the stunning loss. “The divisions laid bare by this election run deep,” she said. “But please listen to me when I say this: America is worth it. Our children are worth it. Believe in our country, fight for our values and never, ever give up.”

The former First Lady also stopped for a selfie with supporter Margot Gerster, who ran into Clinton hiking in the woods one day after her concession speech. And on Monday, she posed for a photo with a supporter who ran into the former candidate while browsing in a Rhode Island bookstore.
