Tucked away in the heart of the Arts District of Los Angeles is a boutique market called Urban Radish. I was first introduced to the owner, Michael Aivazis, by our friends atProprietors LLC. while location scouting. Urban Radish is one of the first markets to land in the area that caters to the sense of wellbeing and quality that is expected from the community of the up-and-coming Arts District.
After I sat down with Michael, I left feeling inspired and grateful for his sense of responsibility as the grocer of the community. He only wants to offer the healthiest, most sustainable, and best options for eating well. Not only is he doing good on the food end, but also paying his employees livable wages and helping those with troublesome pasts that would normally have difficulty finding a job.
