wow. the co-op scene in msp has a new belle of the ball. i have a huge crush on the new seward co-op
dh and i were blown away by the the spacious aisles, produce (local hydroponic red leaf lettuce in jan! eff-yeah!). everything from gluten-free pies in the frozen section to the gorgeous mound of fresh ground eichten's bison in the meat cooler. the deli offered hot baked quiches, moles and vegan mexican/ecuadorian offerings-- but they need to turn down their steam tables a little, everything was getting over-brown and dry. a brief perusal of the expanded offerings yielded commercial-sized frozen bags of veggies, organic instant ramen, a plethora of local keeper veggies, including some gorgeous & sweet harmony valley turnips. staff was excited, smiling and helpful. a handwashing station at the front of the produce section for customers to use before touching the produce! take that WFM! the cheese section is small but packed with goodies, & significantly cheaper on 2 items we purchased than either the wedge or lunds/byerly's. check it out for the local food products, check it out for your natural bulk items, check it out for the LEED approved features of the building, but check it out soon and post your love letters here!
