Letter to the Editor
We at the Doylestown Food Market want to thank the Intelligencer for the very good article about our store in Monday’s paper. We also wish to thank our many members and customers for their ongoing support.
We have an important message for our community. We are still in business! And we need your help to continue to support our local farmers and producers while providing you with access to clean, fresh, nutritious food and locally made goods.
We have been working with Kimberton Whole Foods to produce tangible improvements in our store, including new products at great every day low pricing. We are planning changes that will allow even more products at competitive prices.
Did you know that you don’t have to be a member to shop at Doylestown Food Market? In fact, approximately half of our sales are to non-members. Our members do get benefits and the knowledge that they are an integral part of our market. But we serve the entire community.
Why shop at our Market? When you do, you know where your food comes from. You can often even meet the farmer or producer in our store. You know how the food was grown. Our produce is organic or nearly organic. Our meat is from pastured animals that are grass fed and raised without antibiotics or hormones. Our food is non-GMO and free of additives. PLUS, our local focus keeps your shopping dollars in our community – helping to keep our farmers farming.
Running a small grocery store that focuses on local and on organic and clean foods and products can be a challenge, as Monday’s article explained. But a business like ours can be profitable, as demonstrated by the success of stores with similar missions, including Kimberton Whole Foods and Weavers’ Way Co-op, in Chestnut Hill, a community very similar to Doylestown.
Stop in and discover how great it can be to shop local – fresh, nutritious and delicious! Check out the changes we continue to make. And help us to continue our mission whether as a Co-op or part of the Kimberton Whole Foods family!
