I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Organic market, bakery to replace Super A

A new organic and eco-friendly market will open at Alhambra Pacific Plaza, the former site of Super A Foods. Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability Market, or LOHAS Market, will open at 300 W. Main St. by January 2015, according to project architect Simon Lee.

Lee, along with chef Theresa Lin and food expert Joseph Lee, presented Monday to Alhambra City Council plans for a grocery store that will feature fresh and healthy products, as well as cooking lessons.

"We understand in Alhambra we need a high-end but low-price gourmet supermarket," Joseph Lee said. "We're going to have a similar look, like a Whole Foods, but the price is going to be close to a Trader Joe's."

Lin will teach cooking lessons at the store, including recipes for Chinese, Mexican, and Italian cuisines. "I not only teach them how to cook, but I tell them a lot of concepts about how to handle the kitchen," Lin said. "So we can let everybody know how to cook easier, simpler, healthier, and money-wise, saving."

Alhambra Mayor Stephen Sham said he is looking forward to the new store. "It's wonderful. We need something that's in caliber in our downtown," Sham said. “We wish you the best and we want to see the ribbon cutting as soon as possible."

85 Degrees C Bakery Café will also open at the plaza, according to Lee. Known for espresso, decorative cakes, and gourmet baked goods, 85 Degrees currently has locations in Irvine, West Covina, and Hacienda Heights. The Alhambra store will also open in January.
