Philadelphia food fans. For a work related project a group of us need to visit specialty food sstores, shops etc to sample and taste the latest trends in food flavors. We are mainly interested in "sweet" places but are also interested in some savory. An example might be a bread bakery shop that might have both sweet and savory products. Not interested in butchers.
Earlier this year we completed a trend trek of Soho, Chelsea, Greenwich Village and Lower NYC and just last week we did Mid Town NYC. Both treks turned up a tremendous amount of ideas, trends and concepts. Now we want to do Philly!
Here is a list of the type of places we are looking for:
Specialty Gelato, Ice Cream
Gourmet Shops or Markets
Specialty Coffee or Tea shops (no Starbucks or Cosi)
Chocolatiers or Specialty Chocolate Shops
Interesting Candy or Nut Stores
Specialty Juice or Smoothie Stores
Specialty Cupcake Shops
Specialty Doughnut Shops
Anything I may have missed
I have already have on the list Capogiro, Reading Terminal Market, Dibruno"s, Metropolitan Bakery. I know there are many others, please help with the list.
Looking to stay in Center City but we are willing to travel from the Delaware to the Schuylkill, basically anywhere in Center City.
Thanks in advance for your help
