A new Whole Foods store opened in Mid-City on Tuesday, at Broad and Bienville. It’s the site of the former Schwegmann’s grocery, which has been vacant ever since Katrina.
The space includes four nonprofit tenants in addition to the Whole Foods. The upscale grocery is just one of many factors reshaping the area.
Ten days before the grand opening of the new Whole Foods, the meeting room at the Sojourner Truth community center was buzzing in anticipation.
