Our Community


Our co-op has provided nutritious foods for the Linden Hills community for over 40 years. We believe that access to healthy food builds strong, healthy communities.


Our co-op is proud to be a part of the Linden Hills neighborhood. Linden Hills is a small community near Lake Harriet and full of community places and local businesses. One can easily make a day of exploring the Linden Hills village, biking on the path that runs through the neighborhood or spending some time at Linden Hills Park. \

In our 40 years of business, we've supported our neighborhood by providing local and organic foods, buying from local Linden Hills vendors, providing education in nutrition, and serving as a gathering place for neighbors to meet.
