Need Health Food Store recommendations - Los Feliz/Silverlake/Echo Park

julias_child | Nov 20, 2011 02:27 PM

I recently learned that Nature Mart (where I have been shopping for 20+ years) in Los Feliz was bought by the Lassen family. That said, I need to find a new place to buy my organic produce and vitamins, as I will no longer be shopping there.

For those who are unaware, the owners of the Lassen's chain gave nearly $30,000 in cash support to the backers of Proposition 8, which took away the civil right for gays and lesbians to marry in California. So I will not spend a dime in the new Nature Mart/Lassen's to fund their bigotry.

So the question is, do I go to Whole Foods in Glendale, or are there any great independent health food stores left in the Los Feliz / Silverlake / Echo Park area? I'd love to support another deserving indie store, if one exists.

Due to work, I am splitting my time between L.A. and SF these days, and Rainbow Food Co-op in San Francisco is fantastic. Is there anything like this in L.A.?
