Mississippi Market was recently awarded a 2018 Twin Cities Indie Business Award in the Impact category for its commitment to positively influencing the community through local sourcing and sustainable business practices.
The Twin Cities Indie Business Awards are held annually by the Twin Cities Metro Independent Business Alliance to celebrate the economic and social benefits that local, independent businesses have on the local metropolitan community. The market was nominated in four categories – Founder Award, Emerging Award, Impact Award, Non-Profit Award and Gary Mazzone Award, which honors an individual who advocates for local independent businesses in a way that inspires others.
“We are honored and humbled for this recognition from our local community,” said Gail Graham, Mississippi Market Co-op’s general manager. “We’re thrilled to have been nominated in the Impact Award category along with other local business leaders, including Castle Building and Remodeling, Green Space True Natural Design, and Software for Good. Without strong support with and from local community partners, Mississippi Market would not be the business we are today – a thriving natural foods cooperative owned by over 19,000 Twin Citians who value good food and direct relationships with the farmers, producers, and growers who make it.”
