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.

If you’d like to learn more, read our About section!

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


Peaches were a big hit last August, so we are doing a bigger order this year!

Pre-order now for August 15 pickup!

Full-grown, tree-ripened peaches. Expect a beautiful, large freestone peach that is firm and wonderfully sweet!

Palisade is the best-known place for Colorado peaches and Palisade Produce is a completely herbicide-free small orchard operation. 

Truck departs Palisade, Colorado, Tuesday, August 13 and drives 1,200 miles to our door. Peaches arrive at the Minnesota Street Market on Thursday, August 15.

This season, the orchard folks tell us that the amount of moisture the Western Slope of Colorado received in winter and spring “has been absolutely spectacular.” Everything is on schedule “to ensure that your fruit will be of optimal size and flavor.”

These peaches are meant to be eaten not long after picking — or preserved by freezing or canning.

For small orchards it’s a tough balance between picking fruit when it has ripened enough on the tree but not so much that it will bruise during shipping. So if you see a little bruising, don’t fret. It doesn’t diminish flavor!

Look at your box for full instructions on handling these delicate spheres of flavor.

Pick up your peaches on Thursday, August 15 and tell us what you think.

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!”
