What's Happening in:  All over South Philly 

Sponsored: Philly Foodworks brings Chester County farms to South Philly

rsz_large

Philly Foodworks was started by three guys who got into urban farming in West Philly in 2010, and they’ve since greatly expanded, primarily sourcing fresh produce from 10 growers in the Chester County town of Honey Brook. In addition to farmers, they work with food artisans to curate one of the best selections of local goods in the city and make them available through the farm share and an online farmer’s market.

Philly Foodworks sources from local farms as much as possible and make sure to buy only from farms that use good labor practices and organic growing methods. Besides fruits and vegetables, there is also dairy, meat, bread, pantry goods and much more. They also sprinkle in various Philly favorites, such as Dottie’s doughnuts from West Philly, tortillas from 9th Street, hot sauce from Cafe Chismosa in Northern Liberties, and a number of other one-off fun items that you can pick from weekly online.

Feel like taking a dip in the pool, and get fit along the way? South Philly’s homegrown gym, Fitness Works 714 Reed St., has completely renovated its indoor, heated saltwater pool and it’s ready for your efforts to get in beach body shape.

The 15-meter pool on the gym’s underground level ranges in depth from 3 to 5 feet, and it’s kept about 83 degrees year round. A new technology uses salt water chlorine generation, so it’s less harsh on your eyes and hair than traditional pools.

The deck around the pool was recently resurfaced. Floats, noodles and kickboards are available for use, but make sure to bring a towel.
