DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - In just a few weeks, Downtown will have a new grocery option. Carolyn Paxton, a co-owner of Urban Radish, said the market at 661 Imperial St. will open on May 29.

The 8,200-square-foot warehouse will sell fresh produce, meat, seafood, dairy and an array of prepared items. The operation plans to focus on fresh ingredients, Paxton said. “We’re a farm-fresh market and community eatery, a neighborhood market that’s rooted in traditional foods going back to when food was farm grown and picked off the vine when it’s ripe,” she said. The large mural of a chipmunk on the exterior of the building near the Toy Factory and Biscuit Company lofts will remain and greenery will be added around the property. Paxton said the grocer is teaming up with Homeboy Industries to create a hiring program that will train participants of the gang prevention and job development nonprofit. The May 29 opening is pending final inspections from the city. A grand opening event is slated for July.
