Local

At Weavers Way, we define “local” as products produced within about 150 miles of Philadelphia. We work with 255 local vendors; many are producers making the everyday items you find in the store like hummus, bread and soap. These items are locally produced but often the primary ingredients are not local. Other vendors are farms that grow the primary ingredient locally (like produce, meat or dairy), and many of whom turn it into delicious jams, cheese and yogurt.

Local Purchasing Coordinator Stephanie Kane works with our suppliers to bring in new products to the stores. Part of Weavers Way’s mission is to have a positive impact on the local economy and we work to fill the stores with fresh items made close to home all year long. Supporting small businesses in our area is a cooperative value that we take seriously. If you have any questions about out local sourcing philosophy, vendors or products, please email skane@weaversway.coop.

Tyler Case and his fellow "myco-geeks" know a lot about mushrooms, and they're eager to share their knowledge — and the delicious funguses they grow.


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.


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.


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.
