140826_RiverMarket_L_028River Market’s bulk department offers a money-saving alternative to packaged products.

Shopping in bulk is easy — bring your own containers to refill, or use one of the bags we provide. You can buy as much or as little as you need.

Trying out a new recipe and only need a pinch of paprika? No need to buy an entire spice container filled with it, just come buy a pinch. Not only does it save you money, it keeps your spices fresher.

And we have a lot more than just spices and herbs available in bulk — rice, flours, nuts, teas, coffee, peanut butter, beans, grains: over 450 items!

Come explore our bulk department and you’ll be impressed by the fresh, money-saving alternatives to packaged products.

Bulk Popcorn

Meet Meg Johnson of Bittersweet Farm, provider of our bulk popcorn – if you haven’t tried it yet, it’s some of the best around, and we have three varieties: Red, yellow and white.

Her farm is located close by in Lake Elmo, just south of the Washington County Fairgrounds.

Even with bulk foods, we can still celebrate the very local food system!
