Manitoba's Truly Local Food Store
August 4, 2020

When we say local, we mean Manitoban.

Red River Co-op is owned locally by member-owners (like you!). We are operated locally – our head office is located in the Transcona area of Winnipeg (who knew?!) 

Red River Co-op’s support of local runs deep, right down to the roots of farms here in our province. It is that time of year when farm fresh and Manitoba grown produce start rolling into bins and on shelves of our food stores. Kale and carrots from Starbuck, broccoli and cucumbers from Saint Francois Xavier, squash and potatoes from Altona… this tasty and healthy list goes on! Find out what’s fresh from Manitoba farms in-store, and take a sneak peek at the map below for an overview of what you will find.

Did you know that all ground beef sold at Red River Co-op food stores is 100% Manitoba raised and made? Yep, you read that right!

We have roasting chickens from Blumenort, sausage and bacon from Winkler, steelhead trout from Warren, Berkshire pork from Winkler, and a brand new product: Bump Beef + Plant blend for those looking for a plant-based protein option. Find these items and so many more in our food stores.

Let’s taste what Manitoba has to offer and support local farmers and producers in the process! Eat Manitoban at Red River Co-op – Manitoba’s truly local food store.
