Watch out, Erewhon. Another celebrity-beloved healthy grocery chain is hitting LA, just miles away from the cult-favorite food haven. This fall, Lassens Natural Foods and Vitamins will open the doors to a whopping 12,000-square-foot store on the ground floor of the Essex Apartments at Wilshire La Brea, offering 100% organic, non-GMO groceries to the Miracle Mile community. This will be Lassens's 11th store in California, joining the Los Feliz location that Natalie Portman is a frequent customer at.
Larchmont Buzz reports that the market will feature "a grab-and-go section that includes a Hot Bar with fresh hot food offerings, and a Cold Bar to serve up salads and sides," perfect for those looking for a meal in a pinch. There will also be one hour free parking.
Lassens at Wilshire La Brea is expect to open this September. Store hours will be open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 7pm. Closed Sundays.
