There's actually much more exciting news out of the co-op sector recently: Two of the metro area's flagship food co-ops, Seward Community Co-op and The Wedge, are both planning new locations! It's simply fantastic that these great natural foods stores--locally owned by the people in their communities--are expanding their market share.

I can't see a WF at Snelling & Selby -- way too close to the existing Fairview & Grand store. Woodbury and Eagan, however, are the kinds of communities that could support a WF and neither city currently has a food co-op either.

I am with you learnedhelen - even though I live in Western WI and have an AWESOME CSA delivery to my work, Seward Co-Op is my next stop. As good or better quality that Whole Foods at a much better price and less snooty people.

I love Lakewinds Co-op that used to be really close to my office. I keep meaning to check out the one in Linden Hills though too. Much better than Whole Foods which used to be good, but has become too corporate, particularly with it's now agreement regarding GE foods. Love that the co-ops carry local, and have no problem labeling if something doesn't contain GMOs.
