Started in 2013, the Craft Fair is a fundraiser for the Co-Op. The Bethlehem Food Co-Op is owned by the community members it serves, and will support local producers and sustainable, humane, and natural food systems. Member-owners make a one-time $300 equity payment and receive an equal voice in Co-Op operations, opportunities for hands-on involvement, discount days, and access to unique educational opportunities, among other benefits. A monthly payment plan is also available to divide up the equity payment over the course of one year. The Co-Op currently has more than 600 member-owners, and the faster it gains them, the sooner it can open its grocery store to serve the community.

The Bethlehem Food Co-Op is a diverse community encouraging physical, social, and economic health by providing healthful, affordable food; emphasizing local, sustainable, humane, and natural food systems; and offering unique educational opportunities to the entire community.
