Shopper & Diner: Outdoor-style in Atwater; Boyle Heights market embraces healthy fare; and collaborative stouts in Glassell Park

Atwater Village, shopping

Presenting “The Midge” |  Potted

By Marni Epstein

The outdoor style specialists at Potted in Atwater Village are beckoning spring with new furnishings. This season the team of Annette Goliti Gutierrez and Mary Gray are offering “The Midge,” a modern and customizable outdoor accent table. A steel frame and glass tiled top bridge the modern and garden aesthetics.

In other Shopper & Diner news:

Also in Atwater, Golden Road Brewing is boiling up more than hops, notes Curbed LA. The brewery has put together an initiative to help see the Greenway 2020 to fruition. For every pint or four-pack of their 2020 IPA purchased, the brewery will donate a dollar to help fund the greenway and bike path slated for the LA River.

La Opinion says that Boyle Heights’ Euclid Market is promoting fresh food options. Proprietor Teresa Avila’s neighborhood market is emphasizing a better approach to eating with its fresh produce, like bananas and avocados, front and center. She keeps their other, less healthy fare somewhat hidden in the back of the store.

More beer is on tap in Glassell Park. Eagle Rock Brewery and AleSmith Brewing are toasting a new collaborative milk stout. The Full Pint notes, this specialty beer commemorates a kind-of-sort-of-one-time partnership between the two operations. Eh, who’s keeping track? – whatever the reason, you’re reaping the benefits beginning March 20th.
