At Weavers Way, we define “local” as products produced within about 150 miles of Philadelphia. We work with more than 300 local vendors; many are producers making the everyday items you find in the store including 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 (such as produce, meat or dairy), and many of whom turn it into delicious jams, cheese and yogurt.
Half of the money we spend on sourcing products to sell go to local vendors. We work 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 for that reason we work hard to fill the stores with 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 Purchasing Manager Norman Weiss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
