“We will sell the best fruits and vegetables the season has to offer,” says Teegen, “along with a variety of wholesome kitchen basics, including organic milk, butter, eggs, bread, and more, plus a daily selection of prepared foods. Our ingredients will be purchased from local farmers and purveyors whenever possible, in order to support our regional economy and family farms. We will also offer a variety of events, including classes, readings, and tastings throughout the year.”
In addition, Cookbook will operate a bit like a CSA, with subscribers funding the store’s day-to-day operations in exchange for store credit. A limited number of subscriptions are being offered on a first-come-first serve basis over the next couple of weeks. Subscriptions are as such:
A $250 subscription will earn you a $300 tab at the store
A $500 subscription will earn you a $600 tab at the store
A $1000 subscription will earn you a $1200 tab at the store
The store will be located at 1549 Echo Park Avenue, and will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. No word yet on a specific opening date, but we’re hoping for something later on this summer. It seems a perfect fit for the neighborhood.
