Welcome to the Doylestown Food Market News and Blog

You will find a host of news items and blogs about local farms and producers, healthy eating, store activities and more. The Market is now managed as a private entity. The articles include items that date back to the very beginning of the Co-op. Because we still share the same mission, we have kept them available for you. Enjoy your reading!

Sweet Spot and Basically Burgers Work Together

On August 1, Basically Burgers and The Sweet Spot, two family friendly restaurants with very different menus, cooperated in a fundraiser for the Doylestown Food Co-op.   More than 60 families of Co-op members and supporters came out and spent almost $1000 on a Wednesday night of threatening weather from 5:00 – 8:00.  Both of these restaurants, located at 33 N. Main Street in Doylestown, donated 20% of each ticket when the purchaser mentioned the Doylestown Food Co-op…. For many supporters, this was their first visit to either (or both) of these places and the buzz indicated that they’ll be back! ...

At Fonthill

What a fun time we had at Fonthill's Eat and Drink Local event on August 18.  We had an opportunity to show off an showcase some local providers with what was obviously excellent (and beautiful!) food donated by Barefoot Gardens, Blue Moon Acres, and Crossroads Bake shop.  We also served up lots and lots of information about the Co-op!  We raised awareness about our efforts with many people who, despite our ongoing efforts, had not heard of us.  We also increased our email list significantly.    We had an opportunity to use our library display background, designed by Jean Cauller,...

Bicentennial Fun

Planting Seeds For the Future at the Doylestown YMCA Bicentennial Picnic By: Karen Vanderwall, member owner On June 2nd the co-op was growing it local at the Y.  We joined the Central Bucks YMCA at their Bicentennial Picnic to help Doylestown celebrate its 200th year anniversary of being the county seat of Bucks County.   It was a beautiful spring day – inspiring thoughts of the bounty of local fruits and vegetables we will all soon enjoy.  To further demonstrate how locally grown is a community effort, the co-op, along with Cub Scout Pack 71 members C.J Frisbie, Doug Bignoult, Chris Strickland, Josh Galanti, Tyler Morrow and...
