Among the unique staples of our Mount Airy store is the Kombucha Kegerator, a tap upstairs in the Bulk Department where shoppers can fill their bottles with an ever-rotating selection of the finest fermented flavors Philadelphia has to offer. Our draft kombucha comes courtesy of Inspired Brews and Food and Ferments, two small businesses dedicated to perfecting the art of fermentation.

Here at Weavers Way, we are truly lucky to be within two hours of some of the most fertile farmland in the country  — which gives us access to some great local creameries, and the fabulous cheeses they produce.

Since September 2012, Mt. Airy folks have been enjoying fresh juices and smoothies from the Juice Room on Germantown Ave.

Wholesome Dairy Farms near Douglassville, PA, produces all its whole raw milk, yogurt and kefir from its herd of 45 grass-fed cows.

While it may only be a year and a half since we started carrying Philly Bread at the Co-op, many of us can hardly remember the bakery shelves without it.

Stryker Farms provides Weavers Way stores with pork from heritage-breed pigs, as well as goat meat, all from animals raised to the highest standards and treated humanely. Nolan Thevenet grew up in the mountainous countryside in Saylorsburg, PA. After attending a local college, he transferred to Drexel to get a taste of Philadelphia. Realizing he missed the outdoors, he returned to his mother’s 47 Monroe County acres to become a farmer.
