The Purple Carrot Market

Our community-Owned grocery store Coming soon to Little Falls, MN

In The News

Just in time for Mother's Day, the Purple Carrot is teaming up with N&S Sellers from Staples, MN, to bring you organic produce and poultry. Stop by the Shoppes of Little Falls from 10 am - 2 pm and pick up locally raised chicken, duck, goose, and lamb. (Yes, we know that "lamb" is not poultry!) If the weather cooperates, Nolan & Sheena will also bring along some of their produce!
