The Faribault Food Market

Fresh, healthy food is vital to living a fulfilling life. The Faribault Food Market stocks Fresh and Canned Food, Vegetables, Fruits, and culturally specific foods, as well as soup, pasta and tomato sauce, rice, milk, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, and baby food and formula.

We also stock non-food items such as toilet paper, diapers, detergent and soap. The Food Shelf offers bags of food for emergencies, and Nutrition Assistance Program for Seniors (NAPS).

No ID or proof of income is required, and any information shared with us is kept confidential. Our staff speak English, Spanish, and Somali.
