A new fresh produce market is now open at 23rd and W. Passyunk Ave., just across the street from Grubhouse.
Gentile’s Fresh Harvest is a fresh food market, selling affordable fruits, vegetables and flowers.
The location specifically sells apples, bananas, watermelon, broccoli and spinach.
When we stopped by, the market was closed, but if you’re in the neighborhood and are looking for a new market with fresh produce, this might just be the spot for you.
More from Gentile Fresh Harvest’s website:
Greg Gentile grew up in Philadelphia at a time when families went to corner vegetable and fruit stands and bought high quality produce from local people from the neighborhood. Greg always had fond memories of picking out ripe apples and pears and how his mother would joke with the owner and workers who all seemed to know everyone’s names.
Times have changed, and it seems like most people think that fresh, quality produce should only be available if you are willing to spend more than most people can afford. But Greg Gentile doesn’t believe that. He has remained faithful to the commitment of delivering the highest quality produce to his neighbors at prices they can afford.
You can also place orders online through their website.
Gentile Fresh Harvest’s hours are from Tuesday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. through 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. through 3 p.m. Gentile’s Fresh Harvest is closed on Mondays.
