The Locals

    No matter where you call home, these Movers and Makers make everyone in the Philadelphia area feel like a local. Puyero restaurant owners bring the Venezuelan community together while educating people about their rich food culture. “Mod Betty” takes us to some of her favorite diners and tourist spots from her Retro Roadmap. Learn the coffee roasting process at Little Goat Roasting, where their passion for organic coffee and serving the community create the perfect blend. Plus, meet Talia Young, whose organization “Fishadelphia” sources affordably priced fish from New Jersey for diverse seafood eaters.
