Food co-op leads new Bloomington center


Green Top Grocery has opened and will anchor The Foundry, a center situated on a boundary between manufacturing and residential neighborhoods in Bloomington, Minnesota.

Green Top could represent the burgeoning of a new player in the fresh and organic grocery segment in shopping centers: the local cooperative. Owned by 1,500-plus local residents, the Green Top co-op attempts to source products from farmers and vendors within a 100-mile radius of Bloomington.

Along with bulk food items, wellness products, and groceries, Green Top operates what amounts to a seven-day-a-week farmer’s market supplied by local operations such as Ludwig Farmstead Creamery, Prairie Fruits Farm, and Sasse’s Apiary.

Also opening at The Foundry were Bloomington Cycle and Fitness, Gingerbread House, and Coffee Hound.
