The story behind our salad bars

by Bea James, senior manager of organic, natural and sustainable programs

Our salad bars focus on fresh, unique and healthy foods! We use the freshest ingredients with a wide variety of greens, whole grains, raw and steamed veggies, nutritional boosts and more.

Most people think of a salad as lettuce, a little shredded carrots and dressing. Not me! A good salad is satisfying and can pack so many great flavors and textures. I put all kinds of delicious ingredients in my salad, like roasted vegetables, grains, nuts, dried fruit and even top it off with a boost or two.

75 Years of Growing Together

This year we’re honored to celebrate Lunds and Byerly’s 75th anniversary. It’s humbling to know we’ve been an important piece of the fabric of the greater Twin Cities community since 1939, when my grandfather, Russell T. Lund, Sr. opened our first store on Lake Street.

Our story began with his vision to create a grocery shopping experience that was second to none through unmatched service, quality and expertise. From the very beginning, he surrounded himself with people who shared and built upon his commitment and compassion for each other and the community.

Going downtown ... again! Lunds Penfield opens May 15.

Just a couple of years ago we opened the first full-service grocery store in downtown Minneapolis and now we’re headed across the river to do the same in downtown St. Paul.

Opening May 15, Lunds Penfield will be downtown St. Paul’s first full-service grocery store!

Lunds and Byerly’s Kitchen is officially open!

5… 4… 3… 2… 1… Welcome to Lunds and Byerly’s Kitchen ! Our taps are flowing, our ovens are piping hot, and our food is fresh and ready to go.

Grand opening day was a rush – thank you to all who joined us! The morning started with a buzz of excitement and anticipation as everyone put the finishing touches on displays and triple checked every spotless inch. Our staff was eager to finally share what we’ve been working so diligently on these past months.

Cozy up to our fireplace with a glass of wine expertly paired with a chef-crafted flight of Alaskan salmon. Stop by to grab soup, salad, or sandwiches for the whole crew before heading out for a day of fun around Lake Minnetonka. Or simply check milk and bread off the shopping list on your way home.

You’ll soon be able to do all of this and more at Lunds and Byerly’s Kitchen, a first-of-its-kind food destination opening in The Promenade of Wayzata on March 6. This is a place for great food, personable expertise, and shopping convenience


The 143-seat restaurant and bar will feature chef-crafted seasonal offerings, stone oven pizzas, burgers, and more. We'll also have an impressive selection of wine and local craft beers.
