Good Food Since 1961

In 1961, Philadelphia's produce market moved to a distribution facility on Galloway Street in South Philly where Norm & Lou's opened and quickly became a foodie's favorite by offering fresh, homemade dishes made from scratch. These dishes included Norm & Lou's corned beef, hand-carved roast turkey breast, meatloaf, soups, gravies, cole slaw and potato salad—all of which are still prepared fresh every day.

Philadelphia Wholesale Produce Market2011 saw the opening of the Philadelphia Wholesale Produce Market on Essington Avenue, which established the highest global standards for the distribution of fresh produce. Norm & Lou's moved to the new, modern facility expanding from a small space to a ninety-six seat cafe. The menu also expanded to include additional homemade items and daily specials, off-site catering, and a "Create Your Own Salad" option that offers fresh ingredients sourced from the produce market daily. It doesn't get any fresher! Like our motto says: Good Food is Good Health.
