    Northern Liberties: Sustainable Neighborhood Guide

    Northern Liberties: Local Restaurants

    Heritage Philadelphia

    Heritage: This restaurant is your inner architect’s modern rustic dream. When you taste the food, you’ll love it even more. Their seasonal farm-to-table menu not only helps local farmers sustain their businesses, but it also just tastes splendid. (914 N. 2nd St.)

    The Abbaye: A more casual option, The Abbaye is a gastropub that makes all of their food with local ingredients. Stop in for brunch or dinner to enjoy their seasonal menu while listening to tunes from the jukebox! (637 N. 3rd St.)

    No Libs Bar Guide: Local Drinks

    Standard Tap Northern Liberties Philadelphia

    Standard Tap: If you’re in the mood for a classic local tavern, this is where you want to be. This restaurant/ bar serves only locally produced beers, and their menu is farm-to-table. Win-win! (901 N. 2nd St.)

    Coffee House Too: One of my favorite cafes, Coffee House Too brews their java using fair-trade organic beans. This means the bean farmers are guaranteed fair wages, making the sale of goods more socially responsible. They also use local and sustainable ingredients to make up part of their menu which includes some vegan dishes. (501 Fairmount Ave.)

    Shop small

    Once Worn Consignment: What better way to get rid of clothes, or add more to your closet? Once Worn Consignment has a wide selection of brands to choose from, their most popular being Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, and H&M. Consignment shopping is a great way amp up your wardrobe without breaking the bank. One gal’s trash is another’s treasure. (906 N. 2nd St.)

    Ritual Ritual: This eccentric shop is all about good vibes. From pizza lapel pins to statement necklaces to healing mist, they have it all. The products are carefully sourced from around the country, including from their own shop where they have a collaborative workspace in the back. Plus, they just added a healing room for Reiki and Massage Therapy. (819 N. 2nd St.)
