About Us

LANESBORO LOCAL CONNECTS LOCAL GROWERS, PRODUCERS & ARTISANS WITH CONSUMERS FROM NEAR AND FAR

VeggiesLanesboro Local is a non-profit venture. Our mission is to support local growers and producers whose success directly contributes to the strength of the local economy. Through this website and our retail Marketplace in Lanesboro, we are building awareness of the true value of locally grown and produced goods. Both website and Marketplace lead consumers to local producers and facilitate the exchange of:

  • pastured meats and poultry
  • sustainably grown vegetables, fruits, herbs
  • all natural honey, maple syrup
  • wild edibles (blackcaps, morels, native herbs)
  • local specialties (rhubarb, hazelnuts, black walnuts, signature entrees)
  • farm-fresh eggs, cheeses and dairy
  • home-baked goods, including gluten-free
  • handmade jellies, pickles, preserves, dried foods
  • flowers and plants, natural fertilizer
  • hay and grain
  • hand-crafted furniture, pottery, clothing
  • visual arts, jewelry, gifts
  • local services (including local cooking and food preservation classes, woodworking, handyman, writing services)
  • and more.

With the support of a growing membership and generous donations by Friends of Lanesboro Local, we are pleased to offer consumers access to the best of our local bounty – including that of producers across southeastern Minnesota, northeast Iowa, southwest Wisconsin. Our goal is to nurture a culture of healthy self-sufficiency for families and businesses in Fillmore County and across the broader area.

FROM WEBSITE TO RETAIL MARKETPLACE

In the beginning, we envisioned Lanesboro Local as a many-faceted local general store that sold sustainably produced items essential to a healthy, active lifestyle.

In setting out to achieve that goal, we first established this website as a tool to connect buyers with local sellers. The website helped us attract a following of growers, producers, businesses and supporters who share the vision of our mission. It also helped us see that a real point-of-exchange marketplace is essential to our mission. We have since moved to a new location at 207 Parkway Ave N, across from Commonweal Theatre. See our MARKETPLACES tab for more about our retail store.
