About Us / Linden Hills Co-op History: The idea for a natural foods cooperative in the Linden Hills neighborhoodof Minneapolis’s Lakes district was first considered in 1975, by a smallgroup of neighborhood residents interested in having access to organic,local and natural food. After a series of planning meetings and initialfundraising, a small space was secured and the new co-op opened on March12, 1976. At the end of Linden Hills Co-op’s first fiscal year, $101.69in profit was divided among the twenty-four founding members. In the thirtyyears since then, Linden Hills Co-op has moved and expanded its offeringsthree times while remaining the neighborhood’s primary grocer–”bigenough to meet your needs; small enough to meet your neighbors.” With afull service deli, great selection of locally made and locally raisedfoods, many choices for different dietary needs, and a community roomcomplete with a teaching kitchen, the co-op serves as a community gatheringplace–with groceries.
