Philadelphia is a city of neighborhoods, and South Philly is no exception. From Pennsport to Point Breeze, Italian Market to Girard Estates, Hawthorne to Newbold, each neighborhood within the larger South Philly community has its own personality, flavor and identity.
One thing that binds us all together is the South Philly Food Co-op! If you've ever wondered where your 660+ fellow member-owners call home, here's a peek at our current member map:
As you can see, we're not simply clustered along East Passyunk Avenue. To that end, the parameters of our search for a permanent location reflect the geographic diversity of our membership. Here's exactly where we're looking:
We can't confirm a location just yet, but rest assured that even if the Co-op is in a neighborhood other than your own, we're doing our best to ensure it's easily accessible by car, bike, foot and public transportation -- so that all of our members, and all of South Philly as a whole, can feel welcome to enter our doors.
Speaking of which, what will the Co-op carry? Our community members let their voices be heard in this recent Product Preferences Survey, in which folks expressed their interest in local, affordable and sustainable options. Check out the full results of the survey here!
