The Marketplace has a new home: 201 Parkway Ave North, right downtown Lanesboro, Minn. This centralized location will hopefully attract more customers to the market along with making Lanesboro Local the outlet for producers to sell their foods and goods.

Along with the great new view, Lanesboro Local has a bigger and better store. The building is much larger which gives more space for goods to be displayed. The downstairs is newly finished and the larger cooler and freezer space allows for more products to be in stock, which come in on a daily basis. Upstairs, the renovation continues over the next few months but will have upstairs Grand Opening following.

Andrea Miehlisch, one of the seven employees of Lanesboro Local, expressed that the first few weeks have been busy, but she has enjoyed more than ever the interaction with customers, producers, and members in the new store. Right now the Marketplace has 56 different cheeses and butters available. Greens and seasonal produce are offered as well as eggs, meats, milk, cream and chilled snacks.

Saturday, July 6 was the Grand Opening for the new Lanesboro Local. Canopies covered the store front’s sidewalks where demos by members, food sampling, music by Arv and Janice Fabian and Vance Haugen and prize drawings were all taking place. Several artisan vendors were at the opening to demo or explain their skills including, Jane Grevstad (Purses), Lori Hungerholt (Root River Baskets), and Sue Pariseau (Pottery). Visitors also had the chance to talk to board members and staff willing to hear your feedback and suggestions.

The Marketplace is open daily, Mon-Thurs 10-5, Fri -Sat 10-6, Sun 11-4. Lanesboro Local strives to promote the benefits of buying locally to community. The store hopes to stay and continue to become the local food and goods store catering to local cliental and filling the needs of visitors year round.
