2024 Retailer of the Year Minnesota Grown

Seven grocers, including one in Southeast Minnesota, promoting locally-grown produce and products have been named a 2024 Retailer of the Year by the Minnesota Grown Program.

The winners include Nilssen’s Foods in Zumbrota.

The award winners are judged on how MN Grown products are featured, the number of MN Grown farmers and producers that the grocer sourced from, as well as how the grocers used ads, displays, social media, and other events to promote MN Grown to customers.

Minnesota Department of Agriculture Commissioner Thom Petersen commends the seven grocers for their creative efforts to promote fresh, local foods and says when consumers have the chance to eat more foods grown and produced by their neighbors, it benefits Minnesota’s farmers, grocers, and communities.
