WHY Locali is the opposite of Famima—instead of convenience foods imported from Japan, the emphasis is on locally sourced edibles from some of our favorite producers. Don’t miss the Ruby Jewel ice cream sandwiches—they may come all the way from Portland, but they rock.
WHAT Locali packs a lot of interesting products into a tiny storefront, and they’re all either sustainable, organic and/or local: wine, beer from Dales Bros. and the Bruery, sandwiches and salads from M Café, Carmela Ice Cream, La Guera Tamalera tamales, prepared food from vegan suppliers, frozen foods, coffee and snacks. Books, shopping bags, water bottles and other tchochkes for the green lifestyle are stocked as well—even a handy countertop compost bin. Local delivery via bicycle!
