Pictured above is the new Fresh & Easy market at 1025 East Adams Boulevard in South Los Angeles. The store is set to open on February 24. The low-income South Los Angeles neighborhood is underserved by food and grocery stores. The location should be a good one for Tesco's Fresh & Easy, since there are few is any existing food stores in the area. [Photo credit: Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market.]
