Get Fresh

The idea for Grow started in August 2003 when Barry and Kathy Fisher’s five-year-old son set up a fruit stand in front of their home to raise money to buy a boogie board.

“He did very well and then the following spring started selling cherries (from the Central Valley),” said Barry. “He had a big following with notes in our mailbox asking when he would have his next fruit stand, as the cherries were the best they had ever had.” From small stand to Sepulveda store, Grow opened its doors in 2006, bringing fresh and wholesome food to the South Bay, not unlike what the Fishers grew up with in farm country.

A goal since opening day, Grow has supplied superior produce at a normal retail price. “We felt this was a need at the time,” shared Barry, the bins of his market filled with ripe and robust apples, pears and citrus fruits. “What is different about Grow today is that each new category we have started came from a customer request — meat, wine, artisan cheese, specialty groceries, and gluten-free items. We built Grow around the needs of our customers in the South Bay.”

The Fisher family lives in Manhattan Beach and notes the importance of giving back to their community whenever possible. Supportive of the schools in the area, Grow offers scrip sales, items for auction, and sometimes even a great box of oranges at the end of a race.

Added Barry, “We are also happy to say that our kids still sell cherries in front of the house when possible.”
