News: Milk and Honey Opening
Mayor Nutter showed his support for local, healthy food by visiting the opening of West Philly’s Milk & Honey. The new market, which will have prepared foods, fresh produce and baked goods, will be sourcing from Lancaster Farm Fresh and directly from local farms.
“We hope that Milk and Honey will contribute to making West Philly a self contained neighborhood,” says Annie Baum-Stein, who has started the food market with her husband Mauro Daigle, who rehabbed the building. Baum-Stein’s interest in sustainable food is longstanding. She’s had a food column for the Riverdale News, and her mother started the Baum Forum, a New York nonprofit focused on food and agricultural issues.
