Minneapolis, MN — To create North Market: building with, not for, to improve community health in North Minneapolis
The Big Idea
Pillsbury United Communities plans to use human-centered thinking to engage residents in north Minneapolis. This is part of an ongoing problem solving process around health services, merchandising and design concepts for a new creative placemaking initiative called North Market. As a new whole foods grocery store managed in partnership with North Memorial Health Clinic, North Market will also be a convenient health care clinic, pharmacy and wellness education center. The initiative hopes to reduce health disparities and increase resident access to nutritious food.
