Schwartz Market Goes Organic: Thanks In Part to PHLF Tours

by Louise Sturgess
August 12, 2009

Schwartz MarketElisa Beck, who is related by marriage to the the family who owns the building where Schwartz Market is located at 1317 E. Carson Street, always made a point of serving as a parent chaperone when her daughter’s high school toured a certain area of the city with PHLF.

After listening to tour guide Louise Sturgess for several years, she became inspired to create a series of special events and promotions at Schwartz Market, South Side’s main street grocer, and to introduce local and organic produce there.

The first event on August 1 was a grand success.

A second event is planned for September 12, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Stop by Schwartz Market on that day for cooking demonstrations and to see what new locally prepared foods are being introduced.
