An old auto-parts warehouse is getting a sustainability make-over thanks to Common Market. The relic of Philly’s industrial history will soon be the Philly Good Food Lab, a co-working space focusing on local food production and enterprise.
Common Market is a distributor that connects institutions around Philadelphia to local food sources. The company’s rapid growth has made their 2,000-square-foot rental with the Share Food Program too crowded for their ambitious goals and increased popularity. The new space is 70,000 square feet and in good condition from the last owners – Cardone, an auto-part remanufacturing company.
