Weavers Way Co-op to celebrate 40 years on Sunday
Weavers Way Co-op will be celebrating 40 years in the community this Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. on the grounds of the Cliveden in Germantown. The event is free and open to the public.
"After 40 years [the co-op] seems even more vibrant and engaged in the community. None of this would have been possible without the owners who started the the co-op, volunteered at the co-op, and supported each other for so many years," said Glenn Bergman, general manager of Weavers Way, on the celebration.
A farmers' market featuring Weavers Way produce will be on-site. In addition, 15 food vendors and Weavers Way chefs will be serving up meals to community members. Chestnut Hill's Night Kitchen Bakery will be dishing out cake — vegan and non-vegan.
"We will have the grill going and the day will be full of surprises," said Mary Sweeten, communications director at the co-op. "It's going to be a good day."
Mt. Airy's Earth Bread + Brewery came up with a special pale ale to celebrate Weavers Way, the name of which will be revealed at 4 p.m. on the day of the celebration. Community members will have the chance to vote on the name this week based on the top 10 suggestions the co-op received during an open call.
The co-op is also organizing a time capsule to put away on Sunday that is meant to be opened in 2053, when the co-op celebrates its 80th anniversary.
The event will be held rain or shine.
