Shop Small, Buy Local
A round, green local sign indicates an item that comes from Minnesota or four surrounding states—Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, or South Dakota.
The Co-op also carries a variety of hyper-local foods—foods that were raised, grown, or made within a 100 mile radius (listed below). Eating local is good for the economy because money from each transaction stays in our region. It connects community members to the people who grow their food, while helping to support family farms. Eating local is respectful of the environment because food doesn’t travel far, thereby reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Often, hyper-local food is harvested or processed the same day it arrives at the Co-op—more nutritious and delicious.
