New Edible Pedal location set to deliver in West Sacramento
The midtown bike shop and food delivery service Edible Pedal will debut its new location in West Sacramento with a soft opening this Saturday, March 7.
Beginning at 10 a.m., the bike hub will offer coffee by local favorite Insight Coffee Roasters and eats from the West Sacramento sandwich shop Green Thumb Deli.
Located in the city’s former Town Hall building at the intersections of 2nd and 3rd streets, the latest Edible Pedal is an intimate, 850-square-foot variation on its larger counterpart across the Sacramento River. The smaller space, however, offers a library and lounge area to go along with its aforementioned coffee and bike services.
“This is going to be more of a boutique-style store,” says co-owner Brian Asch. “We definitely want to keep a more comfortable atmosphere for people to hang out and drink their coffee, while getting their bike work done.”
A parklet is also being built out front, where bike enthusiasts can sit and enjoy coffee and Wi-Fi.
Known for its food delivery service via bicycle, Edible Pedal’s midtown location will continue to deliver to customers from surrounding area restaurants and vendors like Ambrosia Café, Ginger Elizabeth and The Porch, while its new spot will focus its deliveries within the greater West Sacramento area—including food from Broderick Roadhouse and Green Thumb Deli, with a potential partnership with other restaurants, such as Third Strike Cafe, in the works.
The West Sacramento location will maintain Edible Pedal’s commitment to sustainability and supporting local farms and businesses by offering the same services as the original store, including serving as a pick-up stop for fresh produce from Say Hay Farms and Good Humus, and delivering pet food and supplies from Western Feed and Pet Supply.
“It’s not too often that you find an area that isn’t already established and developed without a bike shop and coffee place," Asch says. "We’re excited to create a little sense of community, a place for people to chill out on a weekday or weekend morning, and be able to feel local and at home."
Asch adds that a grand opening will take place possibly in April.
