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 will receive an equal voice in Co-op operations, opportunities for hands-on involvement, discount days, and access to unique educational opportunities. A monthly payment plan is available to accommodate those who need to divide up the equity payment. The Co-op currently has more than 400 member-owners. The faster the Co-op gains member-owners, the sooner the store 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.
