Best Community Food Driven Market, 2014: This full-service market got its start in 1932, and it continues to thrive. It has as complete a selection of locally sourced provisions as any supermarket. Shareholders enjoy specials, discounts and a frequent-buyer program.

An unerring commitment to partnerships with local farmers and vendors is evident in every aspect of this remarkable co-op—whether it’s the collard greens and eggplants from a farmer in Vineland, N.J., or the organic, gluten-free ice pops made in Chester County. Not that it’s any surprise. Swarthmore’s mix of earnest college students, seasoned academics and aging flower children demands that even supermarkets offer a selection of locally sourced foods. But this co-op’s proactive philosophy takes it a step further, ensuring that the processes used are sustainable.
