Your Market

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

Our community-owned store sells local food and local art in the historic Loso’s Family Grocery Store (1899-2010) in downtown St. Joseph, Minnesota.

WE GIVE THANKS AND WELCOME EVERYTHING AS A GIFT

As we approach another holiday season, with traditions of gathering around food, family and friends, we give thanks:

—To the growers and makers who bring natural, organic and healthy foods to our store and our tables. 

—To the artists and artisans who bring one-of-a-kind hand-crafted items and beauty to our store, and into our lives. 

—To our loyal shoppers, volunteers and donors who by their daily actions sustain a small, independent store in our community.

—To our hardworking, enthusiastic staff who make our store a place of fun, quality and safety.

—To partners who have invested in us: The city, our community lenders, fellow co-ops and grantors.

—To those who have remained steadfast in beating back the COVID pandemic by wearing masks, spreading out shopping times and keeping “social distance” during time spent in the store. 

—To those who have had the courage to see and the willingness to serve those in our community who are in need — not least through this month’s turkey donations to the St. Joseph Food Shelf and last year’s Food Drive (stay tuned for this year’s drive, starting December). 

Thank you for all that you do to make our community a better place!
