We know that it has been awhile since we’ve updated the website but we’ve just been so busy spreading the word about the South Philly Food Co-op (SPFC)!! Here’s a quick recap of what we’ve been up to and where we’re going: We had the yummiest of bake sales at the LoMo Fall Fair on 9/25. Set up on the corner of Broad and Snyder, we had a fun filled day selling delicious treats whipped up by the SPFC volunteers. The Food Trust’s first Night Market was held on October 7 at the fountain on Passyunk Ave. A number of food trucks from local restaurants lined the ave and, for the lucky folks who arrived early, there was an array of fabulous food to be had; SPFC was on hand chatting up folks who waited in the long, long lines for samples. A great time was had by all! Last weekend we were invited to a very special block party on the 1800 block of Christian. Fabulous food, a doggie costume parade, and a wonderful sense of community . . . who could ask for more?! We met some really great people that day. Thanks for having us there! So that’s where we’ve been, now for where we’re going! Come check out Blocktoberfest this Saturday, October 16! This day-long outdoor festival will feature representatives of select craft breweries from around the country showcasing their biggest and best fall beers, as well as delicious food from neighborhood vendors, and a great line-up of live music from local and nationally-touring acts. We hope to see you there! Thanks for all of your support! SPFCShare
We are excited to announce that we will have a baked goods / food goodies table at the LoMo Fall Flea Market and Holiday Fair on Saturday, September 25 (rain date, September 26). We'll have a selection of delicious food donated by your fellow South Philly Food Co-op enthusiasts. Stop by to say hello and leave with a culinary delight! The fair will take place from 9am - 3pm at the intersection of Broad & Snyder in South Philadelphia. The day of the event will be a great mix of over 40 eclectic vendors, fabulous bargains & great holiday presents, as well as live music. Shoppers will also be able to pick up a free recycling bin and register for RecycleBank, learn more about the South Philly Food Co-op and the Street’s Department’s new UnLitter Us campaign, and even adopt a new furry friend from the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). There’s also a special visit from the Buttercream Cupcake Truck in store!!! LoMo’s Fall Flea Market & Holiday Fair has it all . . . lomophilly.wordpress.comShare

The South Philly Food Co-op has created a survey to help us evaluate the need for a food co-op in South Philadelphia. Please coordinate with the other people in your household and fill out only one survey to represent your joint shopping habits and opinions. If you feel your household would carry more than one membership to the food co-op, each person in your household who is interested in having their own membership may complete a survey. Your answers and comments are very important to us and will remain anonymous. Please follow this link to take the survey. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!Share
