First things first…you’ve just arrived in the desert and you’ve checked into your vacation villa. You’re going to be here for at least a week, probably several, more likely a month or two. You need to acquire the basics…where can you buy groceries? Within just a few miles of Mission Hills there are several great places to satisfy anyone’s cravings, be they fresh and simple or more gourmet and sublime. The great thing about being in Southern California is the abundance of fresh produce available to us all year long.

Shopping in the desert has evolved to be an extension of the kind of shopping one might enjoy in Los Angeles or San Francisco, from one of a kind boutiques to designer flagships and everything in between. The one thing that we have in the desert in spades is the abundance of consignment and 2nd hand clothing shops that have an amazing selection of almost new designer clothes and mid-century modern furnishings.
