Groundbreaking at former Tasty Baking site today

    Ground will be broken this morning at the former Tasty Baking site, making room for a ShopRite and other yet-to-be-named businesses.


    ShopRite will anchor the 220,000-sq.-ft. Bakers Square Shopping Center at Fox Street and Hunting Park Avenue. The 30-acre spot will be restructured as part of the Philadelphia City Planning Commission Redevelopment Initiative.

    The site has been unused since Tasty Baking moved its headquarters to the Navy Yard.
