Good Grocer is moving to

2644 Nicollet Ave. South!

When

The Lake Street store is now closed. No date is set for opening the Nicollet Ave store, but our goal is to open in mid 2019.

 

Why

As you may have heard, Good Grocer has to relocate because Hennepin County is using the land for a new exit ramp off 35W.

 

We searched for many months for an existing building that is accessible to public transportation and within five blocks of the Lake Street store. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a suitable location. So, we expanded our search to include land.

Where

We are happy to announce our new home is 2644 Nicollet Ave. South, Minneapolis, MN 55408. That’s just four blocks from where we are now!

At the moment it’s a vacant lot, but construction on a new store will begin soon.

HOW CAN I HELP?

Here's how you can help

Every dollar donated to Good Grocer fights hunger. Especially while no revenue is coming in while the Nicollet Ave store is being built, we rely on the commitments of our donors to continue the mission.

If you’d like to partner with us, it’s as simple as clicking the donate button below.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can active volunteers get a $5 voucher at the Whittier Farmers Market?

Any active Good Grocer volunteer will be able to present their Good Grocer volunteer card (or a photo ID) and get a $5 voucher each week to spend on anything in the farmers market! Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Go to the farmers market information booth.
Step 2: Present your volunteer card or a photo ID to verify that you are a Good Grocer volunteer.
Step 3: Receive a $5 voucher every Saturday and shop for healthy, fresh food!
NOTE: Volunteers are eligible for a $5 voucher EACH WEEK during the Farmers Market season.

Please note that you must present your Good Grocer volunteer card or a photo ID in order to receive the voucher. No vouchers will be issued to anyone without proper ID. In addition, only Good Grocer volunteers (not friends or family) can redeem this offer.

The Farmers Market, located on the south side of Calvary Baptist Church on 26th & Blaisdell, opens on Saturday, June 30 from 8:30am – 1pm and will be open every Saturday through September 29. For more information on the Whittier Farmers Market, click the link below.
