Local

At Weavers Way, we define “local” as products produced within about a 150 mile range of Philadelphia. We work with 255 local vendors; many are producers making the everyday items you find in the store like 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 (like produce, meat or dairy), and many of whom turn it into delicious jams, cheese and yogurt.

Our Local Purchasing Coordinator, Stephanie Kane works 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 we work to fill the stores with fresh 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 skane@weaversway.coop.

While it may only be a year and a half since we started carrying Philly Bread at the Co-op, many of us can hardly remember the bakery shelves without it.


Stryker Farms provides Weavers Way stores with pork from heritage-breed pigs, as well as goat meat, all from animals raised to the highest standards and treated humanely. Nolan Thevenet grew up in the mountainous countryside in Saylorsburg, PA. After attending a local college, he transferred to Drexel to get a taste of Philadelphia. Realizing he missed the outdoors, he returned to his mother’s 47 Monroe County acres to become a farmer.
