Philadelphia Market Report
Here’s a look at what’s happening in food market news in-and-around Philadelphia. This past Saturday marked the last farmers’ market at Headhouse Square but there are several outdoor farmers’ markets that go all year long, most notably the Clark Park farmers’ market in West Philadelphia that happens every Saturday morning.
In some very surprising news, Local Collingswood closed after just three weeks in operation. The market was located in a former Woolworths on Haddon Avenue in Collingswood. It closed after the owners decided the business wasn’t sustainable. Check out the NJPen.com article for more on the downfall.
While Collingswood dealt with the shock of losing a local market, The Gayborhood celebrated their new Walnut Street market. Everything Fresh is located at 1222 Walnut Street and according to Michael Klein, is the brainchild of Ahold USA, the parent company of GIANT Food Markets.

And today, the South Street Headhouse District tweeted out a note that New York’s Garden of Eden is coming to the 200 block of South Street, in the base of the Abbots Square condominiums. Look for Garden of Eden to open in early 2015.
