Co-op History

Breadroot was founded in November of 2000 by a small group of Rapid City residents wanting to start a buyer’s club for organic foods. The Co-op’s first location was in a house at 807 Columbus St., in downtown Rapid City.

Here’s a newspaper article from the very first year that Breadroot was open, from February 2001.
