Gone are the days when picking up some TP and toothpaste meant pushing past the "performance-enhancing" pills and 72-hour energy drinks. Today, you can stock up on globally-conscious granola bars along with your life essentials at any modern grocery market in LA, but Silver Lake's The Goods Mart is bringing healthy shopping to a whole new level.

Founded by LA PR maven Rachel Krupa, the wellness-focused convenience store landed on Sunset Boulevard back in April, bringing organic and natural mission-driven brands into a 800-square-foot space. The mindful market shares a lot with a $1 car wash, so you can give your ride a scrub and then pick up organic produce, humanely-raised eggs by Vital Farms, sprouted whole grain bread by Ezekiel 4:9, sundries from Bob's Red Mill, Better Booch kombucha, grain-free tortilla chips by Siete (along with plenty of healthy dips to go with), Justin's peanut butter cups, toilet paper and cleaning products by Seventh Generation, and florals by Sósia Flora.

Over in the grab-and-go refrigerated section, there are sandwiches by Bahn Oui, burritos by La Palma, noodles by Fat Dragon LA alongside drip and cold brew coffee by La Colombe, and sips by LA's own Art of Tea. You can also enjoy your healthy bites and grab a a seat at the space's greenery-filled outdoor patio designed by cool landscaping firm Terremoto (which is also behind Mohawk West's chic al fresco area), or take a selfie in front of the store's mural by LA street artist Berto (he's also responsible for DTLA salon Nova Arts' cool exterior).

What you won't find on the shelves? Single-serve plastic bottles and products made with artificial sweeteners, flavors, and colors. Also banned from the shop are foods that contain hormone disruptors, antibiotics and growth hormones, pesticides, nitrates, and GMOs. And in lieu of a tip jar, shoppers can donate their change to a local charity (The Goods Mart will pick a different one each quarter). That's not all: the shop has teamed with nonprofit org Lunch on Me to give food within 24 hours of their expiration date to the homeless.

Krupa was inspired by her rural Michigan hometown's Sunoco gas station, where she and her family would catch up with neighbors while stocking up on groceries. She explains that she wanted to create a "better for you" version of 7-Eleven, where aisles were stocked with ethical and eco-friendly staples.

The founder of Krupa Consulting says that she was inspired by her clients — many of whom are food brands, restaurants, and wellness thought leaders who focus on running conscious businesses — to turn her fantasy into a reality; the long-term goal is to bring The Goods Mart to other LA nabes and eventually, the rest of the U.S.
