First Pics: Green Aisle Grocery opens second location in former juice bar

Sadly, !Juice! didn’t last long at 2241 Grays Ferry Ave. But it may be a net gain for the neighborhood as East Passyunk’s Green Aisle Grocery opened its second location in the former juice bar.

Owner Adam Erace said the new location is 1,000 square feet, about four times the size of the original at 1618 East Passyunk Ave. The bigger space also lets Erace and company spread its wings a bit. The Grays Ferry location has a kitchen to prepare foods such as salads, preserves, pickles, nut butters, hot sauce and more. Eventually, Erace plans on selling the prepared foods at the Passyunk store, as well.

“It will give us space to produce our private label line,” Erace said.

The new branch is 1,000 square feet.

Green Aisle Grocery adding second location – with Little Baby’s ice cream counter

Green Aisle Grocery, what is possibly the smallest specialty grocer to ever exist, is expanding in a big way by adding a second location.

The new spot will be in the former Betty’s Speakeasy and Juice! space at 2241 Grays Ferry Ave., across from the recently announced pedestrian plaza near 23rd and South streets.

Brothers Adam and Andrew Erace are shooting for next month to open the new store, which will be about five times the size of the 260-square-foot matchbox at 1618 E. Passyunk Ave. The larger space means more options, including an ice cream counter from local cult favorite Little Baby’s.

Old school or new wave, East Passyunk has you covered for the best kind of gifts to give this holiday season…the edible ones.

Two Passyunk Avenue stores have put together packages to please both classic and nouveau South Philly tastes. For the purist, head to Avenue Cheese Shop (1724 E. Passyunk Ave.) for a holiday basket starting at $50. The “Best of” baskets start with a ball of sharp provolone, a stick of hard salami, imported pastas, and biscotti. The baskets are fully customizable and can be made friendly to any dietary restrictions.
For a more modern take on South Philly food gifts, Green Aisle Grocery (1618 E. Passyunk Ave.) is offering their popular gift boxes. Addressing important issues like booze and brunch, Green Aisle boxes range in price from $50-$90 or can be personalized for you. New items in store include hand-pulled candy canes from Zoe’s Chocolate in Waynesboro, PA. Green Aisle Brand Preserves also come in a ready to give $25 gift set, featuring some of your favorites you thought were gone with the summer, like cherry stormy and raspberry peach. For the aspiring brewer in your life, the Brooklyn Brew Shop $45 all-in-one homebrew kits (smoked wheat, chestnut brown ale, maple porter, or everyday IPA) provide everything you need to brew your own suds at home.
