Member-Owner Appreciation Day Bulk Sale

Please join us on Tuesday, October 3rd for our Member-Owner Appreciation Day Bulk Sale – member-owners receive 10% off all bulk items*, including bulk spices, tea, coffee, cleaners, soaps and lotions, at all three of our store locations.

We’d like to thank you for being a part of our cooperative community. Mississippi Market continues to thrive thanks to the support of our dedicated member-owners. Because of you, we’ve been able to offer local and organic foods to our St. Paul neighbors for nearly 40 years! Thank you for your continued commitment to values-based community building and sustaining a robust regional food economy. We wouldn’t be here without you!

Not yet a co-op member? There’s no better time to join than now, during our annual Member-Owner Drive!

*Discount does not apply to non-discountable items (such as eggs, cut flowers, bulk produce items, cut your own soaps, and special orders)


Why Buy in Bulk?

Buying in bulk means less food waste, less packaging waste, and lower prices. We’re big on bulk because it means buying products with minimal or no packaging in the exact quantities you need. You can even bring in your own reusable containers to fill. The best part is that it’s easier on the earth and your wallet!

Did you know buying in bulk can be significantly cheaper than purchasing packaged food?
