Looking for a local veggie burger? The Trempealeau Walnut Burger is just for you. This burger got its start at the Historic Trempealeau Hotel. They took a bunch of walnuts and a little Wisconsin cheese, added some eggs, bread crumbs, onions, tamari, and a dab of oil.

The hotel began serving the walnut burger in 1986 when the owners wanted to add some additional vegetarian items to their menu. The burger became so popular that customers started asking to take them home. As a result, the restaurant started selling them in frozen four-packs and then to co-ops and grocery stores.

You can find the Trempealeau Walnut Burger at Mississippi Market in the freezer near the other veggie burgers. We normally sell them for $8.99, but they are $1 off all of July.

TIP: We recommended putting foil on your grill to stop the crumbles from falling through the cracks. These burgers also fry up well in a pan on your stovetop.

Our refrigerated section highlights all of your favorite fresh and natural refrigerated food items. Mississippi Market offers a plethora of refrigerated meat alternatives such as tofu, tempeh, and seitan, fermented products such as pickles, and kimchi, as well as natural ready-to-bake items, hummus and other spreads and dips.

Our frozen foods department features choices ranging from traditional “convenience” foods to convenient natural alternatives. Mississippi Market offers organic frozen vegetables and fruits, entrees, pizzas, and snacks all which make healthier eating quick and easy. We also carry a delicious variety of local and traditional desserts for the dairy and non-dairy enthusiast alike!
