Groceries in the neighborhoods around UPenn

lamb_da_calculus | May 23, 201511:53 AM

I'm moving to the UPenn area this summer. I haven't found a place yet but am looking to live in the Grad Hospital/Fitler Square area, or possibly a bit south of the university. Are there any grocery stores worth knowing about in the area? Or other venues for produce worth mentioning?

In college I found a nice independent grocery store that sold produce that might not look quite as great as the stuff at Whole Foods or last quite as long but was a really good value if you chose stuff with a little care. It would be great to find a similar place after moving.

Sources for good meat and seafood in the area, if available, would also be useful. I'm willing to hike a bit more for these, since they're more of an occasional fun thing.

Thanks!
