Shakopee Tribe to open organic, natural foods store in fall
The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community of Minnesota will open a store featuring organic and natural foods this fall.

The 7,900 square-foot facility will offer fresh produce, meat, breads, dairy, frozen foods, personal care items and other products. A deli and cafe will offer freshly prepared dishes.

The store will open by November 1. It comes in addition to the tribe's first community garden.

“A natural foods store is perfectly in line with our philosophy of protecting and preserving the environment for future generations. The organic garden we started is another example of how we are continuing to take care of the earth as Dakota people,” Chairman Stanley R. Crooks said in a press release. “By not using pesticides and other harmful chemicals, we will not only grow healthy foods but we will also leave a legacy of a healthy planet for future generations.”
