A little over a month ago, we told you all about Riverwards Produce, a new no-frills produce shop with an emphasis on affordable, often-local fresh fruits and veggies, opening in Fishtown. Helmed by Vincent Finazzo, who distributes produce to a number of restaurants around Philly, the shop plans to start with weekly weekend hours while also doing wholesale orders for folks who want one specific item in bulk. (Summer-season canners, rejoice!) And good news, Fishtown veggie lovers: The tiny produce shop, located at 1822 Tulip Street, plans to open its doors next week. Naturally, they’re kicking things off with complimentary produce-filled cocktails.

Here’s the deal: On Friday, July 8th, the market will be hosting an opening party from 2 to 7 p.m. The market will be stocked with produce, and W.P. Palmer Distilling Company and Saint Benjamin Brewing Company will be on deck providing refreshments — some made fruits and herbs from the shop. YUM. Then, the market will open its doors officially on July 9th, with a full produce market running from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

All you produce-loving humans out there are welcome to join in on the festivities. We suggest going and getting your happy hour on, then heading home, fully stocked for a veggie-filled Friday-night dinner. (Is it lame that this is my idea of the best Friday night ever? Don’t answer that.)
