The Swarthmore CO-OP is a community-owned food cooperative with a brick & mortar market that’s open to everyone. Over 1,800 households within our community help financially support the CO-OP and allow us to bring locally farmed food options to your table, educate your children about sustainable farming, feed local families in need and host fun community-based events. The Delco Times recently named the Swarthmore CO-OP the best local market in the area.

We are proud to:

  • Provide fairly priced foods and grocery products
  • Ensure a compelling shopping experience, in which our customers feel welcomed and gain a sense of community
  • Create a positive work environment staffed by engaged employees
  • Anchor the Swarthmore business district
  • Build connections with surrounding communities
  • Provide opportunities for community engagement, education, and outreach
  • Strengthen the local food system
  • Inspire confidence of members and shoppers in the CO-OP’s high levels of integrity, accountability and transparency
