Congrats to Mississippi Market’s newly elected board members! Member-owners elected Lauren Siegel, Kristen Lee-Charlson, Natalie Kennedy, and Matt Frank to join the board of directors. Thank you to all of this year’s candidates for your willingness to serve as leaders in your co-op community.
The Positive Change match recipient that received the most votes was Urban Roots. In honor of Mississippi Market’s 40th anniversary, they’ll receive a 40% co-op funded match of the total amount raised for their organization at our registers during May 2019.
This month only, enjoy our featured Cran-Turkey Panini with local Ferndale turkey, provolone, spinach, cranberry sauce, and mayo on new Wedge Bakehouse sourdough bread or a seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte with your choice of milk, espresso and a dash of nutmeg.

November’s Positive Change recipient is Midwest Food Connection (MFC), a local nonprofit that inspires and empowers young school children to make healthy and responsible food choices. Currently, MFC teaches over 1,400 students annually at 14 St. Paul schools about food, cooking, and gardening. November Positive Change donations will support MFC’s educational programming in several St. Paul schools located in each Mississippi Market neighborhood.
