A Farm Boy in the City

We need to hear from you.

For almost a year now, the southern corners of National Boulevard and Overland Boulevard have not had anything on them. Now, in the last week, they're bustling with activity. On the eastern corner, where there was once an Arco, a plywood fence has gone up (now it's festooned with posters) and on the western corner, where the stripped Blockbuster still advertises the video release of The Omen remake last October (saw it, not great) a mysterious sign has gone up announcing the incoming Farm Boy: Fresh Fruits and Vegetables.

Living so close to a good farmer's market (the one on Main Street in Culver City, Tuesdays from 3pm-7pm), I wondered, will this place offer me something I don't already have access to? I googled it -- and came up with a Farm Boy, but it was in Canada, so that was out. After a couple of different permutations, I found one in Long Beach. Its single Citysearch review is glowing, so I called them, but they insisted they only have one location and no plans for more.

So I pose the question to you, good readers, anybody know anything about this mysterious Farm Boy in Palms?
