L.A.'s first conscious convenience store, Locali, opened its doors in 2009 earlier this year to a resounding "Thank God" from the neighboring Beachwood/Bronson Canyon community. The tiny Franklin storefront is stocked with beverages, organic snacks, prepackaged veg, vegan and raw meals, and a better-than-decent selection of natural body-care products, as well as a sampling of natural home remedies, essential oils, holistic wellness supplies and superfoods. In addition to the array of organic, unprocessed on-the-go fare, Locali has healthy convenience-store offerings, from agave-sweetened slushies and brewed organic iced teas to sprouted hemp bagels, vegan bakery treats and tofu hot dogs. Sandwiches can be made to order, and are served with some tasty vegan tamales -- made locally, of course. The Locali folks encourage their customers to consume responsibly by offering various supplies for the progressive sustainable household, as well as reverse osmosis water on tap for those talk-walkers who carry their own vessels.
