(Los Angeles, CA – February 7th, 2020) - Pop Up Grocer, the world’s first-ever traveling pop-up grocery store concept, announces their third residence in Los Angeles. Opening February 7th in Venice, Puffworks® will be one of 150+ select brands showcased. With the belief that food should always be fun, Pop Up Grocer’s mission is to provide a space for discovery, highlighting today’s most innovative emerging brands under one roof.
Pop Up Grocer creates an environment that still feels like a grocery store - product, shelves, fridges - but is fresh enough to take you out of your normal, passive shopping behavior. They create a backdrop for exploration with a space that is friendly and inviting, with the use of colors and smileys - even a living room for lounging and gathering.
Puffworks showcased their crunchy organic peanut butter puffs at the SoHo Pop-Up Grocer last year, and are excited to be a part of their new family section with their Puffworks baby peanut butter puffs – a less crunchy and lower sodium version of their Original Peanut Butter Puffs intended for early introduction. In-line with Puffworks mission – these puffs are made with simple, minimal ingredients, are USDA-Certified Organic, non-GMO, gluten free, and OU-D kosher certified. Their first ingredient is always 100% organic peanut butter which contains no added oils or sugar.
"Our expansion to the west coast represents a very exciting time for Pop Up Grocer. It's our first foray into a market outside of New York City, and an opportunity for us to validate our concept in various cities across the country. LA has always been at the forefront of emerging trends in health + wellness, and as such, has been a part of the vision for us since day one." Emily Schildt, Pop Up Grocer Founder
“The way people – and parents in particular - are looking at their food choices is rapidly changing, and convenience is key.” Said Greg Murphy, CEO of Puffworks. “This makes Pop-Up Grocer the perfect place for parents to discover our puffs and brand, allowing us to spread better-for-you snacking and our answer to early introduction to peanuts - in a fun, creative, and simple way.”
Located at 62 Windward Avenue in Venice, California visitors can shop each day from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm through March 1st. All products sold at Pop Up Grocer range from $2 to $120. For more information, please visit popupgrocer.co.
