News & Events

The Fall 2014 GMM is Sunday, Oct. 26, and in addition to the usual lineup of great food from the Weavers Way kitchens and reports from the Board and management —because it's YOUR co-op! — we're featuring a screening of the acclaimed documentary, "Food for Change." Meet up with your fellow owner-members at First United Methodist Church of Germantown, starting at 5 p.m. You'll learn a thing or two, and there will be cake — and popcorn!

As the Co-op gears up for expansion, we know we need to do our homework. We know we know more about our members than about our non-member shoppers.

So in the next few weeks, we'll be doing at CAT study, which basically means asking you some questions right after you check out.

Check out our weekly Local Monday afternoon showcase of the locally made bounty of our area. Taste samples, meet vendors and save on great products that are made within 150 miles of Philadelphia.
