About Flourish Food Market

Flourish is a first-of-its-kind in Minnesota: a plant-based food market. 

 

You heard that right!

 

We exist to provide access to fresh and healthy food options to households in communities where access to fresh and healthy food options can be difficult to come by. To that end, Flourish is not only committed to providing foods that promote your full health and wellbeing, but each delivery will include recipes to assist you as you introduce potentially new plant-based foods into your lifestyle. 

 

Flourish Food Market is a collaborative partnership between Ace in the City and Rooted Green Wellness, and made possible through the support of Second Harvest Heartland and so many community members.

 

Why plant-based?

 

Chronic diseases that are related to diet and lifestyle choices are the leading cause of death in the United States. Nutrition research overwhelmingly shows us that eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes (plant-based foods) is effective in lowering our risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, and obesity, as well as provide children and people of all ages the complete nutrition they need for optimum health development and growth.
