Lazy Acres Natural Market, which features organic and locally-sourced offerings, opened July 29 at 1841 N. Western Ave in Los Feliz, California. 

The store has a made-to-order juice, smoothie and coffee bar and food venues that serve Mediterranean cuisine, California barbecue and fish tacos. Also available are expanded Lazy Acres staples, such as hot and cold food bars with housemade dishes, vegan and vegetarian offerings and keto-friendly ingredients.

The market has a community classroom for hands-on cooking, wellness and sustainability workshops, which start in mid-August.

“I am so grateful to serve this community and share what makes Lazy Acres special with the folks in the Hollywood and Los Feliz neighborhoods,” said David Schaefer,  store director. 

“Not only are we dedicated to fresh, organic food, we are rooted in our commitments to the community. Whether it’s the 10 cents we donate when you shop with a reusable bag, or hunger relief work through our local nonprofits, we are here to be your neighborhood grocer.” 

Among the store’s other features are a fresh-made poke bowl bar and sushi department; house-made grab-and-go juices and meals; responsibly-sourced meat and seafood departments with ready-to-cook options; and bulk food bins.

Shoppers also will find sustainably-made products by local wellness vendors; functional beverages; seasonal fruits and vegetables; curated selection of beer, wine and spirits; and natural living section with supplements and natural health remedies.

Lazy Acres Los Feliz has self-checkout stations and will offer pickup and delivery service from Instacart and DoorDash in the coming weeks.

Lazy Acres SVP Forrest Gonsiewski described the store’s location, which is near the greater Hollywood area of Los Angeles, as a “really unique neighborhood.”

“We think the shoppers here share many of our core values like nourishing from the inside out with organic foods, living a lifestyle focused on health and wellness and making our decisions with the good of the community in mind,” he said. “Lazy Acres is a special kind of community market, and we look forward to sharing that.”  

Through the store’s Envirotokens program, Lazy Acres donates 10 cents to a neighborhood nonprofit when customers shop with their own grocery bags.

“Over the past few months, our Los Feliz team has forged partnerships with some of the  key non-profit organizations in the area, and will look forward to working even more  closely with them as part of this innovative program,” Schaefer said.

Founded in Santa Barbara in 1991, Lazy Acres’ six locations are “known for their commitment to the communities in which they operate.”
