Famous 4th St. Cookie Co. will soon be closing their bakery on Fabric Row.
The long-standing bakery at 708 S. 4th St. has now been sold to new owners who plan to move away from Queen Village to a larger facility in East Falls.
More from Philly.com:
The plan is to move the bakery later this year from its home on South Fourth Street in Queen Village to a new facility, in a former state liquor store at 4177-85 Ridge Ave. in East Falls, and to grow Internet and mail-order business.
“We’re not leaving Philadelphia,” said Brian Phillips, who is brought full circle at the market by the transaction. Now owner and operator of the Copabanana location in University City, he started in the food business nearly four decades ago as a kid working at 12th Street Cantina.
