Giant to open ‘Heirloom Market’ near 34th and Chestnut

January 22, 2019

Those on and around Penn’s campus may be happy to hear this news: Giant Food has set its sights on a location near 34th and Chestnut for its second small-format food market in Philadelphia, aka Heirloom Market. The city’s first Heirloom Market is opening this week in Graduate Hospital.

The new grocery store will reportedly open at 3401 Chestnut Street, the location previously occupied by Eastern Mountain Sports. 

Giant’s Heirloom Market store concept is similar to urban Target stores, a few of which have opened in Philadelphia in the past few years, with a focus on healthy, gourmet food. The Heirloom Market in Graduate Hospital will offer fresh produce, meat and seafood, and a lot of locally-sourced products. The store will also sell craft, domestic and imported beer and wine.

The Heirloom Market at 34th and Chestnut is planning to hire a Produce Chef, who will prepare fruits and vegetables on demand, as well as artisanal breads and a variety of plant-based foods, according to a report by The Daily Pennsylvanian. It will also include do-it-yourself olive oil and kombucha on tap stations.

The construction is expected to begin in early 2019. The opening date has not been announced yet.

    How many grocery stores, food halls, restaurants, Targets, Wawas and other convenience stores have opened in Philadelphia since the sugary beverage tax went into effect? Philadelphia is experiencing a grocery and convenience store boom and all the media can talk about is one small supermarket going out of business when it couldn’t compete with a newly expanded one nearby.
