Allergy Orchard, which will feature a range of allergen-free foods, is opening Wednesday in Willow Street.
Allergy Orchard is taking a nearly 2,300-square-foot space in Kendig Square, 2600 Willow Street Pike. It’s in a spot between Subway and Just Press Play that had been vacant for several years.
Allergy Orchard will cater to people with food allergies, featuring items that are free of the most common allergens such as peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish and soy.
For example, there are a variety of alternatives to wheat flour, including sorghum, rice flour and corn flour. There are also specialty pastas as well as a variety of baked goods. A refrigerated section will carry cheese alternatives.
The products will be clearly labeled, with information about the manufacturer and a QR code for anyone who wants to quickly find out more about the brands.
Allergy Orchard is owned by Tammy Gingras-Moore and Karen Di Pace, two local moms of children with food allergies who struggled to find appropriate products. They plan to have a couple employees.
