I spent half of my Sunday at an AMAZING all-vegan grocery store. For the first time in over 21 years of being vegan, I was in a grocery store where I could purchase every single product, and this was an incredibly exciting day for me.
Produce grown veganically, loads of brands and product lines that you cannot find at any other health food stores in the area, a bulk section, cosmetics section, pet food section, vegan shoes and clothing, and even a vegan restaurant on the premises. Pure vegan heaven!
I was given a grand tour of the grocery store by one of the store's owners. He pointed out to me a number of products that Whole Foods and other grocery stores in the area do not carry, and he told me about many of the ethical companies that they purchase their products from.
I started off by ordering a dynamite cut roll from the restaurant, followed by a raw vegan raspberry chocolate cheese cake and was very impressed.
The prices at this store are reasonable, and the selection is far greater than you would expect. This is no hole-in-the-wall grocery store. The store is quite large, and there is even an expansive area for lectures. The co-owner mentioned that there additional space in the store that is not being used yet.
I was excited to hear that they are looking to open up a new store branch on the westside of LA! I can't wait!Pros: Huge selection, great food quality, friendly and helpful staff
