The folks over at the Doylestown Food Co-op have been mighty busy since they signed a lease for a storefront on West State Street last fall. Now, the community grocery store, which has been in soft-opening mode since January 2nd, officially has a grand opening date on the books.

On February 8th, the co-op will host a celebration beginning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. Here’s the full line-up, from an email sent to co-op supporters today:


At noon, special guest Gloria Hall, a pioneer who helped preserve Bucks County’s agricultural landscape from development in the late 1980s, will showcase her original Save the Farms poster and speak about the history and importance of farm preservation. A prize drawing of a Vitamix blender, valued at $400, will take place at 2 p.m. for those who bought a raffle ticket. Throughout the day and the following week, expect to see producer visits and product demonstrations.

Unlike some co-ops, Doylestown's is open to co-op members as well as the public. It stocks veggies, eggs, meats, dairy, coffee, locally milled grains and flours, nuts and dried fruit. The Fresh baked goods come from Crossroads Bakeshop, Slow Rise Bakery and LeBus Bakery.

    Great news! The more we own, the more we can control the origin, harvesting, and processing of our food. Co-ops give us the opportunity to “vote” with our dollars and go beyond demonstrating and signing petitions to effect market change in our world.
