The Store:

Riverwards Produce Market is committed to helping more families eat healthier food, more affordably. This is a neighborhood market that brings natural and nutritious food to the people who live in it, advancing the notion that eating healthier meals creates better outcomes for everyone. Riverwards stocks locally sourced produce, dairy products, baked goods, and meat, along with Organic and Fair Trade products, and staple pantry items. We are proud to support a range of talented local food artisans and producers.

The Story:

In the summer of 2016, Riverwards Produce launched a pop-up shop in an old Fishtown garage to gauge neighborhood demand for a fresh produce market. The response was overwhelming! Lines regularly stretched out the door and people went out of their way to tell us how happy they were to have access to a fresh alternative to groceries, delis, and packaged goods stores. We were committed to finding Riverwards a permanent home in the area as soon as possible.In the meantime, we were busy working on the wholesale side of the business. Over the past two years, we have secured a loyal customer base selling produce to neighborhood restaurants. We source directly from area farmers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania to ensure the quality and freshness of our produce is second to none. With an established wholesale business, we are able to supplement the retail side of the business with fresher and cheaper products than other stores.

After a long search, The Riverwards Produce Market found a new home in one of Philadelphia’s first fire houses. The corner space is rich in history and architectural detail and is a natural fit for a neighborhood market founded on community outreach, enrichment, and support. Those values will be showcased in everything we do, including our focus on helping people create good, nourishing, complete meals with the ingredients they find in our market.

By combining wholesale and retail operations , we create multiple exit strategies for our products, and can therefor reduce storage requirements and in-house waste to practically zero. We are partnering with local food banks, composting facilities, and recyclers to ensure the food we can’t use or save doesn’t go to waste.
