Say hello to a brand new weekly column here on the Philly Homegrown blog, Locavore Lunch. In the coming months, we’ll be featuring area eateries that serve lunch and source their ingredients locally. They’re all sure bets for delicious eats and foodie cred. Happy noshing!
Pumpkin Market offers a more casual lunch, but is one of Philadelphia’s favorites. Bar-stool and café table seating is available to enjoy the variety of sustainable meats, dairy, produce and breads Pumpkin Market offers.
It’s not just a regular-old deli-style luncheonette, either. Pumpkin offers breakfast all day, serving up fresh yogurt parfaits, using freshly sliced fruits, and smoked salmon sandwiches. Owners Hillary Bor and Ian Moroney source ingredients from within 150 miles of Philadelphia, ensuring customers receive the freshest ingredients on sandwiches, in chilis, in pastries and milkshakes.
Fresh-squeezed juices that pack tremendous amounts of vitamins are offered, in flavors like ABC (apples, beets, celery) and Citrus & Spice (oranges, carrots, ginger). Smoothies use silky sorbets and Phoenixville yogurt. They liquefy before your eyes, and also use similar fresh fruits to the freshly-pressed juices. Even coffee is locally-roasted!
Pumpkin Market offers a little bit of everything—so long as it’s grown locally—for lunch, in a casual atmosphere. Check out their Facebook page to see all of the beautiful, colorful fruits and veggies Pumpkin uses from nearby farms.
