Her take on the Vietnamese soup made from rice noodles, broth, vegetables and herbs.

Classic Provisions: Cheeses, bread and olive oil.

Jim Degiovanni (Member #31) & Jon Petters (Member #122): Roasted brussel sprouts and homemade Tart Cherry Shrub (also known as “drinking vinegar,” a rediscovered concoction that dates to American colonial times).

Shelly Carlson (Member #451): Maple Fondue and Squash Soup.

Danielle Taylor (Member #73): Fresh Cranberry Salsa.  A different take on fresh cranberries. Quick and easy.  Makes a great holiday — or any day! — appetizer.  Fresh cranberries, a little honey to balance the tartness, spicy jalapeños, cilantro and onion. Beautiful colors.  Also goes well with pork or leftover turkey.

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.

Produce

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!”
