Co-op News

The winners of the Weavers Way Board election for 2016 were announced May 15 at the General Membership Meeting. Congratulations to Chris Hill and Laura Morris Siena, who were re-elected to three-year terms, and Joan Patton, who is new to the Board.

Merrymead Farm provides milk, cream, buttermilk, even chocolate milk to Weavers Way. But to get their ice cream, you'll have to go to the farm store near Lansdale.

We’re excited to announce the launch of our Weavers Way body-care line — organic and sustainable cleansing bars, body washes, lotions and other skin-care items, produced just for us! Weavers Way members get 5% off.

Weavers Way's Ends summarize the our purpose and goals as a cooperative enterprise. But the Ends aren't written in stone — the Co-op's Board of Directors regularly revisits the Ends to update and better define where we are and where's we're headed. Want to get involved in that process? Start by leaving your comments here.

Look for the Local First decal, show your Weavers Way card and take advantage of a wide array of special deals and discounts exclusively for Co-op members from local businesses.

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.

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.

Food For All is designed to put more good food and eco-friendly products in the hands of more members of our community. This program offers Weavers Way members on SNAP, WIC and other forms of public assistance discounted equity payments and an across-the-board 10 percent off their Co-op purchases.

That very spicy stuff Ted Ebert and Tom Hewell want you to sprinkle on your potatoes, and pizza and well, anything, began as a hobby when they were roommates in Manayunk.

Co-op members 65 and older can take an extra 10% off almost all their purchases every Tuesday. Just fill out a form and show ID and you're all set. Here's how to get started.
