Local Produce, Worldly Menu: Cookbook in LA

Local Produce, Worldly Menu: Cookbook in LA

We’re always admiring businesses that follow sustainable practices and bolster local community, which is why Cookbook caught our attention. Located in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Echo Park, the greengrocer sells locally and responsibly grown produce, as well as select dry/canned goods, poultry, meats and cheeses. And as the name suggests, Cookbook offers a daily selection of freshly prepared foods derived from a different featured cookbook every week (past favorites have included Ottolenghi and Canal House).

Above: The simple and airy interior bares just the essentials so the wares take center stage.

Above: Just as one might expect from a friendly neighborhood greengrocer, the latest fresh produce is displayed on the sidewalk.

Above: Shoppers choose purchase goods, sold by owners Marta Teegan (a trained chef, master gardener, and author of Homegrown: A Growing Guide for Creating a Cook’s Garden) and Robert Stelznerner.

Recently, Cookbook opened No.2, a storefront next door that serves as a classroom for food history lectures and gardening and art classes.

Above: The spare interiors of No.2 are adorned with Victoria Morris ceramics and Hadley Holliday artwork.

Sounds great if it's not too expensive. "Health Food" places are out of my price range. Farmers Markets are more for me, but they're not organic.
