About a year ago, I told you about OC’s fave natural/organic grocer and eatery Mother’s Market & Kitchen taking over the old Fresh & Easy location at 1700 Rosecrans Ave. in Manhattan Beach as part of a greater push into LA County. After an extensive remodel of the space, it appears they are poised to open. As per the banner hanging on the side of the building, Mother’s Market & Kitchen will officially throw open their doors on March 16th.
I recently noticed an ABC application announcing that Orange County’s natural/organic powerhouse Mother’s Market & Kitchen is taking over the old Fresh & Easy space at 1700 Rosecrans Ave. in Manhattan Beach. Apparently, this is part of a greater push into LA County that has also resulted in the recent opening of a branch in Signal Hill. Expect a “wide selection for specialized diets, top quality local and organic produce, [and] the county’s largest selection of supplements”, as well as a “beer and wine eating place”.
Update: Mother’s opens on March 16th.
Remember Wild Oats? Long before a certain other large chain burst on the scene, Wild Oats was the go-to grocery store for organic, healthy foods in sharp contrast to what was being passed off as edible at regular supermarkets. All those cozy, neighborhood markets disappeared almost over night due to dubious circumstances and all of you who were dedicated to the pioneering cult brand thought all was lost, right? Wrong! Wild Oats is once again back on the SoCal grocery scene with a limited line being carried by Fresh & Easy grocery stores at local locations.
