South Minneapolis got a little bit greener last spring.
Tare Market – a zero-waste grocery store on East 38th Street – opened in April of 2019 and is the first of its kind in the state.
Tare Market aims to help consumers live more sustainability, and offers food, household and personal care items that are reusable and come with little-to-no packaging. You’ll find a variety of items in Tare, from plastic-free kitchen utensils and food storage containers to lentils, granola and rice.
Patrons are encouraged to bring bags to the store, as some items are sold in bulk to avoid being packaged.
“Zero-waste living is attempting to live your life by creating the least amount of trash possible,” said Tare Market Co-founder Amber Haukedahl. “Part of our mission at Tare Market is to give an opportunity to bring people together, to not only learn, but to also meet one another and build community.”
While its South Minneapolis store acts as Tare’s flagship location, it also has a minimarket on Selby Avenue in St. Paul.
