We recently learned that hälsa, a healthy fast food dining concept is coming to Monroe Street Market this fall. The two driving themes behind the hälsa concept is healthy eating (hälsa translates to “health” in Swedish) and locally sourced food. The restaurant has committed to sourcing 80% of their ingredients from D.C. based farms such as 3 Farmers, Tree and Leaf, Next Step Produce and Ecofriendly Foods. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For more in depth information about the restaurant and its owner, DC area entrepreneur Emily Gaines, check out this story over at the wework website. Check out this tweet from Monroe Street Market:
