Erewhon Market has become the ultimate mecca when it comes to health-conscious, but definitely not budget-conscious grocery shopping. Picture this: a wonderland filled to the brim with organic produce and products as well as their infamous celeb and brand collab smoothies, Hailey Bieber’s Strawberry Glaze Skin Smoothie anyone ? Founded way back in ’68, Erewhon has been on a mission to revolutionize the way we eat, and… ahem, for some of us, re-prioritizing what we spend on (am I getting am $18 smoothie or putting it towards some Veja’s today?).
So what’s the allure? What was once all about their tonic-bar (still good, but loads of other options in LA now), is now all about their hot food bar and ever-expanding white-labelled Erewhon products. For about $25-$30 you can walk away with a veg or protein dinner box with sides – try the vegan mac and cheese, coconut chicken tenders and tumeric broccoli. If you really want to go ham grab a bottle of their Erewhon branded sparkling water.
If you find yourself spending a lot of time and $$$ at Erewhon, it’s worth considering joining their membership program. For an annual fee of $200 you receive $1 in points for every $10 spent, which adds up quickly shopping there. There’s also a monthly complimentary drink and big monthly discounts often featuring new brands to try. While Erewhon’s prices aren’t accessible, you can be 100% certain that they are truly organic obsessed and come with a certified organic stamp of approval.
