Today in Downtown Lafayette, people got a tour of the future site of what will be the city's latest health food store.

The store will be named Handy Stop Market & Café, and it will open in Spring 2020 on Jefferson St.

The store will provide locally sourced produce, meats, and dairy items.

Drinks such as tea and smoothies will also be available.

"We've started demolition on Handy Stop Market and Café here in Downtown Lafayette. It's been a long process to get here. A lot of permitting and processes and prayers to get us this far. I'm really excited about finally starting the demolition," said Bradley Cruice, owner of the store.
