Online grocer Good Eggs has been dormant in Los Angeles for several months now, after unresolved permitting issues with the city ground their operation to a halt. As of last week, they're up and running again, taking online orders and setting up deliveries of produce and locally-made dry goods right to customers' doorsteps.
Good Eggs is the San Francisco-based online grocery store that has been operating in Los Angeles since 2013. There were initial talks at the tech-forward team would be taking the former factory in Frogtown and turning it into a retail operation with a grocery pick-up component, but ultimately those notions were shelved. The building then became just a place for locals to pick up their pre-packed groceries directly, but apparently didn't have all their ducks in a row for the space.
In a since-deleted blog post the company said that a few different permits were still pending with the city, or had been incorrectly filed, leading to a months-long shutter of their entire LA operation. As of last Wednesday, the online produce retailer is back with a vengeance, meaning locals can head over to grab CSA-style bundles of produce, plus locally-made salsas, jams, granolas, pastas, breads, and more. Or, have the packages conveniently delivered.
