Want to stay healthy? Listen to this doctor’s advice and check out the Doylestown Food Market. Dr. Deborah Bernstein of the Holistic Healing Center makes the case for buying local and eating clean in her weekly patient newsletter, also reminding her readers that DFM is open to everyone.
In the July 31st edition of the Intelligencer, there was a front page article about the Doylestown Food Market, my favorite place to shop. The article focused on the struggle that the Market has been having to grow sales and make a profit. However, it didn’t say what we can do to make sure the Market stays open. It also didn’t make it clear that anyone can shop there, not just members-owners. Although is a member-owned cooperative, over half of its customers are non-members.
It’s very important to me that the Doylestown Food Market stay open to serve the community. The purpose of the Market is to provide an outlet for locally grown and raised produce, meats, eggs, and dairy products. There are also many locally manufactured and produced groceries. The majority of the produce is organic or sustainably grown. The meats, eggs, and dairy products are from grass fed, humanly raised animals without antibiotics or hormones. There are also many gluten free and dairy free foods available.
If you haven’t been to the Doylestown Food Market, please check it out. It’s located at 29 W. State Street in Doylestown. The website is: doylestown.coop. Please shop there, tell your friends and family about it, and shop there more. It’s good for you and for our local community and economy.
