Universal Appeal

By Ariela Rose

Mt. Airy’s Food for All Market, a café and artisanal grocery opened in early October and catering to those with food sensitivities, was originally inspired by owner Amy Kunkle’s three small children—they all suffer from food allergies.

Landisdale Farm and Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op supply the produce and meats. Grab and go items are made by allergy-aware businesses such as Sweet Freedom Bakery, the Greenwood Kitchen and Sweet Christine’s.
 
The store’s look was inspired by old-fashioned general stores, but with a sustainable twist. Tables are made from salvaged windows, lights from recycled mason jars and the counter from a consignment shop buffet.

“I really want to emphasize that it’s for everyone, not just people with food allergies,” says Kunkle of the market. “Why would you not want food made from scratch?”
