The Doylestown Food Co-op has taken over the storefront that will soon become a shopping destination for the general public.
On Sunday, Co-Op members celebrated the occasion with a ceremonial key hand over. In the coming months, members will work to prepare the space at 29 West State Street for its future as a store offering fresh, local groceries.
The organization hopes to open its doors to the public in November, President Lisa White told Patch in July. The co-op store will be located at the former home of Eden Organics, which moved down the street.
The 1,400-square-foot space will be a grocery store unlike any other in the area—you will know where each item came from and how it was produced, White explained.
The store will sell vegetables, fruits, meats, dairy products, cheese, soaps and more.
“The focus of our store will be on local products,” White said. But there will also be bulk products like grains and beans that may not be local, she added.
While the Doyelstown Food Co-op is made up of more than 250 members, anyone will be able to shop at the store.
