On Nov. 15, Black American entrepreneur, Ariell Ilunga, opens Carla's Fresh Market in Highland Park. It is the first kind of grocery store that brings together farm fresh produce and unique but sensible food products from celebrated and emerging BIPOC food makers, with grab-and-go and prepared foods section fit for families.
As a mother of two, Ariell designed Carla’s with quality, convenience, and accessibility in mind. Driven by her experience as the curator of the iconic Hollywood Farmers' Market, Ariell Ilunga's vision is to make a large impact on local communities by providing a vibrant and dynamic food source, while supporting California family farms and game-changing food products by lending its platform as a place of discovery.
