Your Market

msm-sign 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.

Please contact us if you are interested in joining as a member or volunteering at the store.

Everyone is invited!  Lots to celebrate!

We’ve just oiled our 1850s floor, scrubbed, painted and improved our historic space. After literally hundreds of volunteer hours, our overhaul project has revealed a can-do community spirit, commitment to hard work, and an ethos of sharing, generosity, pride and fun.

Like the family-owned store that Martin Loso opened in 1899, our community-owned, independent store is a place where shoppers know each other by name, where you can special order products, and where we know the suppliers and farms of origin. We represent an old-fashioned style of grocery shopping — buying less and more often. Offering a quick, daily in-and-out trip.

Join the Minnesota Street Market for our 6th Anniversary Celebration!

Lots of fresh, local produce!
From many varieties of leafy greens to broccoli to cabbages, and more, we work with farmers in Stearns County and in our region to bring you the freshest, highest-quality and sustainably-raised produce from as close by as we can get it.


When you buy fresh, local produce at our community-owned store, you are supporting the local economy, real food grown locally, local growers in our region, and sustainable farming practices.

And food delivered direct from the farm is tasty. As member-owner Kathy Doyle of St. Joseph says:  “Food tastes better when you know the person who grew it!”

“I shop at the Minnesota Street Market because I want to support smaller stores that provide local and/or organic options. I believe that spending my money this way is a way to vote for the kind of food system I want to see, and has an impact beyond simply feeding myself. Plus there are so many wonderful things to try at the co-op!”
