Parade to Sunnyside!


Join us on Sunday, September 12th from 12 – 2pm as we commemorate our co-op’s history and look forward to our future at our new, expanded location at 3815 Sunnyside Avenue.

Naturally, there’ll be a bit of sadness as we prepare to close our doors at 2813 W 43rd Street. To capture this bittersweet sentiment, our “transition ceremony” will take the form of a New Orleans Jazz Funeral Parade. Leave it to Linden Hills Co-op to get quirky!

At noon, we’ll gather in the courtyard at 2813 W. 43rd where we’ll place co-op mementos in a time-capsule.

Staff Favorites: The Local Edition


Becki, Bulk
Whole Grain Milling’s 8 Grain Hot Cereal, Welcome, MN
Unlike many breakfast cereals and granolas that feel healthy but actually aren’t, this one is really good for you. It cooks up quickly and is very cost effective at $1.49 a pound. Very comforting on cold winter mornings and still great during the summer too.

We're Ready for our Close-up!


The talented staff of Linden Hills Co-op is featured in our latest 30-second television commercial, which you might just catch sometime soon on select Minneapolis Comcast Cable programming. Or, if you prefer, take a look at the video on YouTube! And be sure to let us know what you think.
