The Wedge has been a source of organic and natural foods for over 30 years. Though located in a busy part of Minneapolis' Uptown area - an intersection of residential neighborhoods, small businesses and cultural organizations - many customers travel dozens of miles for its products and educational resources. It's a great place to visit. True to its mission, The Wedge is one of the most, if not the most, profitable food coops in the nation, as well as a maker of great artisan bread.
From its website: "...from its grand opening in September 2001, The Wedge Bakery has been showing off its considerable creativity in the art of breadmaking. Head Baker Tony Montana and his staff of magicians have created a cornucopia of artisan breads, European-style pastries, rolls, pizza crusts, and sliced sandwich breads. Writer Rick Nelson of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune says, "These first-rate breads and pastries stack up with the very best stuff coming out of the ovens of other top Twin Cities breadmakers."
