Because if there's one thing the hip neighborhood is lacking, it's another place to buy organic kale and sustainably-raised meat.

Grow, a new farm-friendly grocery store and deli is opening later this month in the Arts District, according to the L.A. Times. On October 24, the 5,300-square-foot, family-run market will open in the shiny, new One Santa Fe building—not far down the road from gourmet grocer Urban Radish.

In addition to sustainable meats, cheeses and produce, shoppers will be able to pick up craft beer and wine, fresh flowers and cold-pressed juice. There will also be bulk food bins and a deli for freshly-made sandwiches and salads. They've also partnered with Instacart to offer delivery around the neighborhood.

With new restaurants, breweries and tea rooms seeming to open weekly in the Arts District, you might wonder if the neighborhood's luxury loft-dwellers ever need to eat in. But just in case they need to stock up on locally-sourced produce, seafood or cheeses, Grow will be there.

The soon-to-open Arts District shop will be the second location opened by husband-and-wife team Barry and Kathy Fisher, who opened their Manhattan Beach shop in 2006. And all snark aside, they sound like a really sweet bunch who kicked off the whole business after their son set up a cherry stand on their front lawn.

Growis located at 300 S. Santa Fe Ave. in the Arts District, (213) 346-9488. Store hours will be 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
