It's a small corner store just south of central downtown Philadelphia. It's a great neighborhood too. This place had an oustanding selection of beers. We needed several Mid-Atlantic and New England IPA's to round out the field for our taste test on the last night of our tour. We found about 9 with ease. I was impressed with their CA beer selection. I was hoping to find Three Floyd's Dreadnaught, but they said it was on order. They have an especially good selection of Mid-Atlantic and New England beers.

This Foodery is a little more limited in terms of selection compared to the Foodery at Northern Liberties due to their limited store space, but they pack or at least try to pack as much of a punch into the shop as they can.
Although the store front is almost hallf the size of Nor Libs', the Washington Square location seems to get all the same seasonal/rare imports that the other Fooderies get as well. (case in point: I bought a four-pack of Goose Isand Bourbon County Stout here, as well as the last bottle of Bourbon County Coffee Stout)
Don't buy food here as the groceries/food is a front for laundering beer (Due to, I'm assuming, the oh-so-strange Philadelphia alcohol laws). If you're looking for good beer and are too lazy/scared to take the Market-Frankford line to Girard, then the Washington Square Foodery is for you.
