Imagine a place where you could snag every new product off of your favorite food blogger’s trendy Instagram feed while sipping a cold brew or green juice. Keep your daydream going, and imagine snagging your favorite fresh honey and bee pollen from a live bee hive. Well, we are here to tell you: this place is real. Mission Hills’ latest neighborhood addition, Lazy Acres, is your foodie dream come true.
Organic all day, everyday
Lazy Acres’ second San Diego digs (you can visit the OG SD location in Encinitas!) is your organic, grass-fed, farm-fresh mecca. The health superstore is stocked with a wide array of high-quality, organic produce, Paleo, vegan, and gluten-free pantry staples, and natural body care products and supplements.
And if you’ve got a fresh-pressed juice on the mind — you’re in luck. They’ve got a juice and smoothie bar (where you can blend in CBD and adaptogens!) with your name on it. Not to mention plenty of grab-and-go items for those of us who are in a hurry.
While Lazy Acres is a chain (with four total locations), the grocer makes sure you still shop local. The Mission Hills’ spot is decked out with a Pannikin Coffee stand, locally-grown produce, locally-raised meat and seafood, and dozens of local San Diego craft beers.
The Bee’s Knees
The buzz is true: Mission Hills’ Lazy Acres has an in-store beehive! The store’s Bee Department highlights the threatened insect’s role in the ecosystem, while offering natural bee products, like honeycomb and beeswax, straight from the source.
