Your Market

The Minnesota Street Market is your hub for local food, art, and education for sustainable living, fostering community connections between land, people, and institutions.

The Minnesota Street Market, a cooperatively owned store, sells local food and local art in the former Loso’s store in downtown St. Joseph, MN. Open to the public, there is no membership required to shop at the Market.

A welcome end to a plague year: But not all was bad! 

This was a year of daily uncertainties and major changes at the Minnesota Street Market.  The Nietzschian phrase, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger” just might apply. We have been made better by it all.

We have had our share of high-stress times this year — a perfect storm of equipment failures, staffing challenges, and a major financial backlog left over from 2019 (erased by April!).

We adapted quickly to “social distancing” (a term none of us knew before March!) and wearing masks to protect those around us. 

We have tried so hard to be both a safe place and a place of community when so many places were shut down. Even 1- to 2-minute conversations became so important. 

We have been persistent in finding ways to make needed capital improvements and replacing equipment. 

Our staff have been so admirably agile and adaptable in responding to change.

We have minimized supply bottlenecks. Our buyer has had such a keen, creative eye for keeping us well supplied.

The all-volunteer Art Committee did a revamp of our consignment program.  The art displays look fabulous and we have never sold more art.  

We were nimble in booting up curbside pickup and home deliveries, and people have been so appreciative. We received a beautiful card with a pop-up tree and handwritten message  that makes all the hard work worth it (see photo).

We have been blessed with deep loyalty of customers and volunteers, who help week-after-week.

We look to 2021, with healthier finances, an eye toward growth, and expecting better things to come.

We are open 9am to 6pm, seven days a week, for in-person shopping (with the exception of a few holidays during the year).  No crowds. No lines.
