Green Aisle Expanding to Graduate Hospital

Big news for the Graduate Hospital neighborhood. East Passyunk’s Green Aisle Grocery is coming to Grays Ferry Avenue.
Below is owner Adam Erace’s note on the new location.
Hi food friends
Apologies for the mass email, but I have some fun news: Andrew and I are excited to announce a second location for Green Aisle Grocery!
After four-and-a-half years of Three Springs apples and Zahav hummus, Mast Bros chocolate and Fee Bros. bitters, we’re finally ready to expand beyond of our 260-sqaure-foot space on East Passyunk with an outpost across town in Graduate Hospital. In May (depending on city approvals), we’ll open a second grocery in the former Betty’s Speakeasy/Juice space at 2241 Gray’s Ferry Avenue, right across from the recently announced new pedestrian plaza.
The storefront will give us five times the space of our original location, plus a kitchen that will allow us to expand our private label line of preserves, pickles, nut butters, hot sauce and more. We’ll have easy grab-and-go options, as well–think ready-made salads with local lettuce, fruits and cheeses, Pequea Valley yogurt parfaits swirled with our blueberry cardamom jam and lavender-infused honey, whole grains salads starring Bucks County farro, etc. We’ll have all the locally-focused groceries you can find at our Passyunk shop, and then some: a deeper variety of PA and NJ produce, more cheeses from local artisans, refillable bulk cleaning supplies, an even bigger selection of bitters and barware.
One of the most exciting elements of this location will include a Little Baby’s counter. Little Baby’s will be supplying us with rotating flavors of their ice cream that we will dip to order in the store. We will try not to eat it all ourselves.
If you’d like to chat, just holler. Thanks for helping spread the word and for your support!
Adam (and Andrew)

    You might wanna turn the photo clockwise about 180 degrees. :-)

    Do we have to stand on the ceiling to eat there? Is this place owned by Lionel Ritchie? Is there a flaw in the space-time continuum on Grays Ferry?

    Forget farm-to-table, whole hog, craft cocktails, and house-made charcuterie. The next wave in dining is… upside down!
