Atwater Village Farm is open for business

It's on the way home and we've been watching through the window for some time so stopped on Friday, their opening day. No signage yet but on the corner of Larga and Glendale Blvd. The store is handsome and has a really gallery feel. The shelves aren't teeming but there is an interesting array of local products. The produce rack has high quality items at very steep prices. There are enticing small jars of local jams and chutneys at $12 a crack. I found a good brand of tomato paste in a tube and also picked up some harrisa, also in a tube and something I'd never seen before. Both items were $3 which seems fair. There is a counter with pretty baked goods, including a good selection of vegan items, and as I recall the prices weren't posted. The staff was genial and happy to add items to a wishlist they are compiling. I suspect that when they're more fully stocked there will be more items in the proletariat price range. An extremely pleasant place to shop and the parking is less treacherous than Trader Joe's. If they cater a bit more to folks who lack unlimited disposable income I predict they'll thrive as a friendly neighborhood haven of fine foods.
