visiting philly, local or organic focused restaurants/markets?

hello all!

i'm visiting from Toronto, Canada for business and will be staying at the Sheraton University City Hotel by UPenn for one week. i was hoping that i could get some recs for markets/restaurants/stores nearby that offer up local/organic produce/products.

the request is a bit specific because i'm trying to eat "local" for the month of may as a challenge and well, when in rome... i'm unopposed to eating in high end places to student joints as long as it serves my purpose. the University of Toronto actually has a cafe that offers vegan, locally and organically farmed food (i'm an omnivore btw) and i was wondering if UPenn has anything like that.

i may not have access to a car, so anything walking/public transit/short cab ride away would be preferable.

also, while not on my local tangent per se, i've fallen in love with Dogfish Head microbrew (specifically Raison D'Etre) and any suggestions on where to find some to take back with me would be fantastic.

come to think of it... if anyone can tell me where i can get an organic philly steak sandwich or anything else philly centric would be fantastic!!

sry for the long request, thanks so much! if you ever need a guide to toronto, i'm you're girl.
