Healthy Eating is a 2016 Resolution That We Plan to Keep

So you’ve made some resolutions for the new year, haven’t you? Join the club. Jump on the Internet and you’ll find various sources saying that 40 to 50 percent of us have made a promise to lose weight, quit smoking, get fit, save more money, or work on relationships as the calendar pages flip. The key, though, is keeping that promise to alive.

Healthy eating is one of our priorities. And we have a great store just a few blocks away that can ensure our basket will be full of tasty, fresh and HEALTHY food. We’re giving a shout-out to the Doylestown Food Market, of course – a locally sourced cooperative grocery. While it’s a community-owned store, you don’t have to be a member to shop there. The store, celebrating its second anniversary at 29 W. State St., sells produce, meat, eggs, dairy, beauty and cleaning supplies that it obtains from more than 100 local farmers and suppliers. A couple of featured products in February: raw chocolates from Luv’s Superfoods created by Doylestown entrepreneur Lisa Leleu and Dajia’s Super Snacks, which is based in Jenkintown. February events include musician Pauline Zager on Fun First Friday, a chili cook-off Feb. 6 and the Food for Thought Book Club (“Like Water for Chocolate” is the selection) meeting at Doylestown Book Shop Feb. 9.

Pay a visit to the Doylestown Food Market, right in the center of town. In their words: “Our store is a feast for your eyes, your stomach, your heart!”
