Purple Porch Co-op celebrates new location


Downtown South Bend welcomed an old business in a new location Wednesday. The Purple Porch Co-Op celebrated its grand opening at a new location on North Hill Street.

Although the business has been around for four years as a local food market, this is their first event in Downtown South Bend. The member-owned business moved to their new location after spending three years on the South side.

Greg Koehler, General Manager of the Purple Porch Co-Op said, "It's good for the city of South Bend to have an urban market and it's great for us because we think that the visibility and accessibility is right where we need it."

The Purple Porch Co-op is open every Wednesday from 5 to 7 pm and Saturday mornings in the summer from 8 am to noon. They're hoping to have their building up and running by late summer or early fall.
