The Linden Hills Co-op Difference


Customers often ask why they should buy dietary supplements and personal care products at Linden Hills Co-op and not at one of the many other stores that carry these products.

The difference = quality + community + customer service.

In the Health and Body Care department at Linden Hills Co-op we only work with companies that use the highest quality ingredients and manufacturing processes. We also feature a large selection of products that are made with organic ingredients and are made by local companies.

Fresh Daily Sushi


We have a great variety of fresh sushi delivered daily from our favorite local supplier to our deli. Stop by to check out the new selections—many of the rolls include delicious and nutritious brown rice, making a treat that’s good for you even better.

Preserving the Local Harvest


This great article, reprinted by permission from “The Mix,” is by Susan Jane Cheney, St. Paul resident and former member of the Moosewood Restaurant Collective in Ithaca, NY. As the local growing season kicks into high gear, we thought it was a perfect way to prepare co-op shoppers, farmers’ market mavens, and CSA shareholders for the challenge of eating local, longer. Enjoy!

Eat locally” is an old idea making a comeback as the costs to individuals and the environment of long- distance shipping, packaging, and processing of foods are reevaluated.
