A Final Thank You

To the friends, members and customers of the Doylestown Food Co-op and Market,

August 31 marked the last day of business for our store.  It also marked six years in that space.  While it is empty now, it is full of wonderful memories of the good we have accomplished over the years.  

From the original build-out by forty volunteers, to the four plus years running as a Co-op, and the last 18 months running as a privately held market, there was always great community support and involvement.  There was also commitment to the mission of supporting local farmers and providing access to clean, nutritious food.  

We want to thank you all for your support.  We urge you to keep shopping local and support local farms.  And keep eating healthy too!

To help you with all that, here are ways you can continue to support local farmers and purchase clean, nutritious food.
Two local businesses that share aspects of the Market’s mission have made offers for our customers.  

Poppy’s Green Grocer in New Hope is similar to the Doylestown Food Market.  It is a brick and mortar grocery store that "strives to up-end the grocery world by mutually empowering farmers, food makers, and consumers to build a food system on their own terms”.  Poppy’s is offering Doylestown Food Market customers 15% off their first visit.  Just mention this offer when you go to check out Poppy’s.  We think you will like it!

Bodhi Market is a Bucks County based, owned, and staffed online farmers market delivery service. They offer organic produce,  artisan small batch grocery, and ethically raised meats delivered to your doorstep year round. The service requires a weekly or bi-weekly subscription (though you can skip orders or cancel at anytime at no fee). Members can choose from multiple box types to fit their needs. New menu's with the best of the season are released weekly and all orders are fully customizable. If you are interested in trying Bodhi Market go to www.bodhiboxmarket.com and use code DTOWNMARKET at signup for $25 of your first Bodhi Box.

In addition, two other stores focus on natural food and source locally.  
 
Kimberton Whole Foods is located in Harrow, at the intersection of 611 and 412.  "Kimberton Whole Foods sells truly local products from farms we know and trust, with whom we’ve developed relationships over the past 30 years. For a number of our local vendors, we are their primary retailer.”  They focus on organic and fair trade food.

Organnons Natural Market is located in Wrightstown.  They focus primarily on organic food.  In the spring of 2020, they plan to open a second location on Business Route 202, across from Delaware Valley University. 
Of course, in season, there are also local farmers’ markets throughout Bucks County, where you can meet the farmers personally when you shop.  We especially urge you to support the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance.  BCFA is a non-profit that directly supports local farms through education, including farm tours.  They run the farmers markets in Doylestown and Wrightstown.  These are two excellent markets.  Check them out.  You won’t regret it.
Finally, wherever you shop, ask them to source from local farms and local food producers.  Spread the word!

Thank you.

Debbie, Paul and John

Announcement About The Doylestown Food Market

August 1, 2019

To the customers and community of the Doylestown Food Market,

We regret to announce the Doylestown Food Market will be closing on August 31, 2019.

While we transmit this news with a sense of sadness, we are also grateful for many things, chief among them the support of many in our community and the positive impact we have made for local farmers and producers.

During the month of August, please continue to shop. We will continue to stock your daily needs, such as bread, milk, eggs and produce. Look out for special sales! Be on the watch for future communications. Also, our refrigerators, shelving, and most other equipment and contents will be for sale.

Our doors opened on January 2, 2014 as the Doylestown Food Co-op. The mission has always been to support local farmers and to provide our customers with access to fresh, clean, nutritious food. We are proud to say we have stayed true to that mission for over five and a half years.

In February 2018, three members of the Co-op purchased the assets of the Market in order to keep the mission going. We had planned to move to a larger site with more space and ample parking. We looked for a suitable site for several months, but were unable to find one with the right combination of location, size, parking and cost. So we worked to make the store as successful as possible in the original location.

We have always had a core group of faithful shoppers, who supported local and sought out healthy foods. Unfortunately, due to several factors, we were unable to attract enough additional customers to turn a profit on a regular basis.

We wish to thank all those who have been so supportive to both the Co-op and the privately held Doylestown Food Market over the years. This includes, but is not limited to, our dedicated staff, the former members of the Co-op Board, the approximately 600 former members of the Co-op, our landlord, our many local farmers, and most especially our committed shoppers. The list of others we wish to thank is too long to include in this letter. We could not have made the positive impacts that we did without your strong support.

We urge you all to continue to shop local and eat healthy. We will!

Warm regards,

Paul, Debbie and John

Barefoot Botanicals Gives an Herb-in Vibe to Cocktails and EANABs

Barefoot Botanicals Gives an Herb-in Vibe to Cocktails and EANABs*

Hey bartender, gimme a lavender martini with a spritz of rose geranium… and make it a double.

Yes, the herbal-infused mocktail/cocktail revolution is here and Barefoot Botanicals is all in. The herb farm in Doylestown, owned by herbalists Linda Shanahan and her husband, Eric Vander Hyde, recently has expanded its capabilities for producing herbal-infused syrups and hydrosols that cater to the new connoisseurs of cocktails.
