Great Store & Food Bar

5 Posted on 01 / 06 / 2012

Long ago I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my Erewhon Natural Foods Market review.

Erewon is the ultimate independent health food market in the Mid/West Los Angeles area. The selections are complete and extensive.

Just the other day, I was blown away with then new inventory of raw foods products (2 isles full). The salad bar and hot foods bar offers a good range as well.

A totally enjoyable shopping experience. I just wish I lived closer to it so I can support it more often.

Pros: large selections, nice atompshere, good salad bar

Erewhon

4 Posted on 04 / 17 / 2011

I've been to Los Angeles several times in my life and have driven by Erewhon many times not knowing that they are a natural food store with a plethora of vegan items. So I stopped by to get my usual snacks during my trip and scoped out the entire store. After checking things out I had left really wishing we had one of these in Chicago. I'm a loyal Whole Foods shopper, however, Erewhon carries things WFM doesn't. The selection was just different and I was intrigued by many of their deli (store packed) items (such as their vegan mac and cheese). I did happen to notice that their produce was kind of bad, for instance some of the oranges were rotting, so I skipped getting my usual oranges. Despite the produce issue, if an Erewhon was in Chicago I'd be shopping there and at WFM for the different selections.

Great little store

Erewhon is a great store although it is a little pricey. It definitely carries items you can't get elsewhere which is why I shop here. I used to live much closer, so now I have to stock up if I come. Speaking of stocking up, I love the bulk section. It actually has stuff vegans use, like nutritional yeast, broth mix and sucanat. It's also unlike Whole Foods as you don't have to smell and see the awful butcher area while shopping here (although they do carry some meat). If you think you have to order something online, check here first. They probably have it! It's really oriented towards vegetarians/vegans/raw, not mainstream shoppers who buy organic meat and farmed fish.

Pros: carries a ton of vegan stuff, bulk section, easy parking
Cons: has some meat

Long Time Love!

5 Posted on 01 / 09 / 2009

I have loved this place since high school. Some things you can find for less at other stores, but it has some really hard to find items that I've only been able to find online. The bulk area is great and there are many ingredients for all my fellow Raw Chefs! Hit up the juice bar first so you can sip n' shop!

Pros: Great Selection, Lot's of rare/hard to find items, Helpful/Frinedly Staff
Cons: A bit of a drive in high traffic area, Needs More RAW Deli Options

I wish Whole Foods could be this cool

Erewhon is great. I saw Minnie Driver there once. Its right next to the Grove (neat outdoor mall) Parking is awesome, no hassles. They carry the Vegan kitchen in the deli in bulk, but its not labeled. They've got a great assortment of vegan cookies.

Pros: parking, vegan friendly

Pros: parking, staff, raw foods
