By the end of the month, far-east Downtown will be graced with a much-needed resource, as well as another certain sign of success for its recent residential experiment and ensuing explosion. A new 8,200-square-foot grocery store named Urban Radish is opening on Mateo Street on May 29, getting the jump on Whole Foods and its natural competitors with prepared items, as well as farm-fresh produce, and high-quality meat, seafood, and dairy. The market, which is inked in massive murals by Belgian street-artist ROA, may be teaming up with Homeboy Industries for staffing needs. [LADTN; Facebook]
