DOWNTOWN—DTLA is—finally!—getting its own Whole Foods Market (788 S Grand Avenue) this week. Celebratory events begin this Wednesday when the health-conscious grocery store chain opens with a traditional bread baking ceremony at 9am and will also include beaucoup food and beverage samples and giveaways (highlighted by a visit from local brand Cabo Chips), demos, live entertainment, and even a photobooth. You can park for free at the 8th and Grand parking structure when you stop by for festivities. This spanking new location includes an organic salad bar loaded with local greens, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, and the 8 Bar Pub which will boast "boozy gelato." We're so in.
