Food for All is a local artisanal grocery store which features allergy-sensitive fare. It is brand new to downtown Mt. Airy, which is located just blocks from Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia County. I had never heard of this shop, but while on a hunt for my favorite local honey, I contacted the bee keeper who sent me to there. Upon arrival, I immediately noticed the amount of products that were locally sourced. Filled to the brim with options, I was drawn to the center table where my honey was on display along with fresh apples and other fruit ready for purchase. A refrigerated section held hummus, beverages, greens and lots of yummy food that I was dying to try.
Had I not brought my children with me, I would have had purchased something from the prepared food case. Everything in there looked amazing, and there happened to be tables and chairs at the window for those who want to dine-in.
I met one of the owners as I was browsing the store. She was super nice. Her children had food allergies, which caused her to bake her own foods, which transformed into a business and ultimately Food for All. I love mom-owned businesses. Next time you are in the area you should check it out.
Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 8 AM to 8 PM and Sunday, 9 AM to 6 PM. Closed Mondays except in December. Monday hours are 8 AM to 6 PM this month only.
