Chef Fernando Villagomez has expanded his role in Grand Central Market.

Villagomez, who is behind Mexican spots Villa Moreliana and La Tostadería, last month opened La Fruitería, a take on the sidewalk fruit stands popular across greater Los Angeles.

La Fruitería debuted on March 29 and serves a wide assortment of healthy and colorful fruit cups and bowls, topped with a combination of yogurt, sweetened condensed milk and Mexican crema, and sprinkled with shredded coconut, raisins and granola.

The stand is near the Broadway entrance of the market and serves from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on Monday-Thursday, and 9 a.m.-8 p.m. on Friday-Sunday.
