The Wedge Co-op has been a feature of its South Minneapolis neighborhood since it started in 1974 on Franklin Avenue, in the basement of an apartment building just up the hill from Lyndale Avenue. A group of neighbors met that summer to organize a cooperative store to provide themselves with whole and natural foods, preferably in bulk quantities to save money.
From that humble start The Wedge grew to have over 16,000 members from all over the Metro Area and beyond. We continue to pioneer ways to bring delicious organic and sustainable food to our community.
While we teach school children, deliver food all over the Midwest, and work to protect organic integrity, we never lose our primary commitment to our owners. The foundation of all our work is and will always remain service to our community of owners and the values they hold dear.
