• Feel lost at the grocery store because you don’t know what’s what? Some help: The folks at Prevention saw fit to name 100 packaged foods that that they consider “clean” (Note: This is not the same as low-cal; it just means these things aren’t full of, say, Yellow 5.) [Prevention]
Not long ago we told you that Mom’s Organic was going to open in Bryn Mawr’s Rosemont Square Shopping Center in a former Borders (from books to bok choy). Yesterday, Be Well Philly spoke with the Maryland-based chain’s owner, Scott Nash, and asked why he chose Bryn Mawr for his new store — the chain’s largest store to date:
“Our other stores in Maryland and Baltimore are in the big retail areas,” he said. “So I asked a lot of people in Philly, ‘Where is your retail equivalent?’ They all said the Main Line.”
Be Wellers on the Main Line, listen up: You’re getting a big, new organic market come February. Maryland-based MOM’s Organic Market is expanding to our area with a new 17,000-square-foot store in the Rosemont Square Shopping Center at 1149 East Lancaster Avenue in Bryn Mawr.
It’s the market’s biggest store to date, founder Scott Nash told me, and if all goes well, he hopes to open more MOM’s stores in our area down the pike. “Our other stores in Maryland and Baltimore are in the big retail areas,” he said. “So I asked a lot of people in Philly, ‘Where is your retail equivalent?’ They all said the Main Line.”
