Philly Foodworks makes buying, eating, and sharing fresh food as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible. They work with a diverse group of producers and distributors to navigate the challenges faced by producing outside of the mainstream commodity food system. They feel that food is how people connect to themselves, the land, and their community. By engaging with food more consciously, we can build a world that nurtures these connections.


Musi is named for chef Ari Miller’s legendary fishmonger in Tel Aviv. Musi is a pioneering relationship-based cuisine, where food is an expression of the people and community it takes to nourish us all.


James Melton is a Philadelphia-based guitarist, performer and educator. He performs in a variety of musical settings and ensembles – from combos, to duos, and in solo performances. His performances contain a tasteful mix of jazz, pop and contemporary improvisational music.


After Midnight Brewing Co. focuses on fermentation techniques that awaken our senses, and set the spirit free. We craft magical renditions of old-world styles using local ingredients and wild foraged yeasts, while celebrating the new American frontiers of brewing with hop-forward experimental ales and lagers.

Weaver’s Orchard began with Jacob and Lizzie Weaver growing fruit in Delaware. Their son Daniel purchased the current Berks Co property in 1931. He planted fruit trees, berries and vegetables and marketed the produce by the truckload on street corners in Reading, PA. Soon he started selling at the farm and set Weaver’s Orchard on the path to becoming a community destination. 

Today, the Weaver’s welcome people to visit and enjoy pick your own fruit, a farm market, attend parties and events, educational opportunities and family-friendly experiences on the farm. Their vision continues to expand, with hopes of a new market some day that will an expanded garden center, bakery and more events like farm to table dinners.

Menaker has performed at SXSW, has toured in 50+ cities around the country, and performs regularly in the Philadelphia music scene. She plans to release a new EP in 2019.


Hale & True Cider is made by fermenting fresh Pennsylvania apple juice, straight from the orchard. They thoughtfully incorporate ingredients like hops and fruit to create session ciders that are balanced and complex.
