Every time you purchase Certified Hereford Beef, Gold’N Plump, Just Bare Chicken, Jennie-O Turkey products, Thousand Hills Grass-fed Beef, No Name Steaks or Compart Duroc Pork, you are supporting your local community and family-owned businesses. Our local meat departments are filled with a wide variety of meats that are from our very own Midwestern backyard. Our local meats are fresh, delicious, and are only of the highest quality. At Coborn’s, Cash Wise and Marketplace Foods we want our meat to taste good without shortcuts or compromises. That means high quality Gold’N Plump Chicken that is as fresh as possible, tender and juicy beef from our farmers with Hereford Beef and 100% grass fed beef raised with sustainable farming practices throughout the Midwest from Thousand Hills. When you purchase products that are from one of our local partners you can rest assured that the meat will not only taste good, it was raised with high ethical standards ensuring a top quality product.
Our partnerships with local suppliers extend beyond the Meat Department. In 1921, Coborn’s began as a local produce market and almost 100 years later we remain true to our roots. We live in America’s heartland so we source as much as possible from our local neighbors. Local sourcing brings the freshest products to your table, minimizes carbon emissions, keeps dollars local and is simply the right thing to do. Try our local apples from Pepin Heights Farm in Lake City, MN, peppers and cabbage from Riverside Farms in Elk River, MN, potatoes, corn and squash from Stoneybrook Farm in Foley, MN, along with dozens of other family farms to bring you the freshest possible produce – only a day’s drive (or less!) away!
