Super Fresh Garden, Market and Bakery, under new ownership, will be hosting its grand re-opening from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 11.

The grand re-opening will feature Kelly Gritzmacher, a professional portrait photographer who will be on-hand from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to take photos of customers who wish to commemorate the day with a picture with their mom or their kids, or anyone with their friends or family. Super Fresh will also have a drawing to win gift cards from other local businesses.

“We’ve been re-opened on a limited basis for the last three months, but now that spring is here and our greenhouses are stocked, we’re ready for everyone to come and see what we’ve working hard to prepare for them,” said Heather Boes, who co-owns Super Fresh with her brother and fellow Austin native Adam Boes.

“We’re so excited about and grateful for the support the community has given us, and we couldn’t have done it without the help and friendship of the previous owners, Jim and Merlene Stiles,” Adam added.

In addition, Super Fresh will be showcasing produce from new local partners, such as popcorn from Carroll’s Corn in Rochester, a variety of hot sauces from Sam Sa’house in Austin, and maple syrup from Burgess Family Sugarhouse in Duluth, just to name a few. Super Fresh has also expanded its gift selection, just in time for Mother’s Day. 

“We feel so lucky to have such an amazing team, which stayed on with us from the previous owners – and with a few new staff additions,” Heather said. “ The plants and flowers that Carmen, Amanda and Denise have grown on site are truly gorgeous, and I hope folks come to see them.”

Super Fresh started in the 1940s as a produce market selling fruit and vegetables.

In addition to providing the Austin and surrounding communities with fresh produce and quality nursery goods, Super Fresh stressed it’s committed to serving as good stewards of the environment. They recycle cardboard, paper, plastic, metal, and aluminum. They also compost their food waste with local farmers. 

Their rain gardens capture 5,000 gallons of rain with each rain event helping to keep our rivers clean. In 2014 they discontinued the use of single-use plastic bags and, to date, have eliminated 156,000 plastic bags.

Super Fresh is located at 2101 4th Street NW, Austin, MN 55912 and is open Monday-Saturday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
