Mariposa Food Coop is Getting Bigger
West Philly’s Mariposa Food Coop has announced that it will be moving down the street to expand to a space five times as big as it’s current location. The proposed plans for the new space is complete with sustainable construction—with bee hives and farming on the roof!
Mariposa has been providing access to local, organic and fresh foods to a small number of West Philly folks since the late-’70s, expanding from a buyers club of just a handful of people to its current storefront spot and 700 member households (and about 1,000 shoppers). It hopes to expand to an even wider and more diverse West Philly community.
