An update regarding detours at the train crossing on Granada Avenue:

Washington County this week sent out a note saying Lake Elmo Market gas and convenience store will soon offer a fresh fruit and vegetable section.
Lake Elmo Market owner Ramiz Saadeh has been working with Our Community Food Project to plan the new section and purchase the produce.
“Access to healthy foods is so important for adults and their growing children, and I care about nutrition and my community,” Saadeh said. “I am fortunate to be working with Our Community Food Project along with Living Healthy in Washington County for the assistance they have provided so I can serve my community better by offering fresh fruit and vegetables.”
The corner store project was initiated by Ann DeLaVergne, community member and coordinator of Our Community Food Project, who has worked with Living Healthy in Washington County, a Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) initiative in the past.
Produce will be available beginning Friday, Nov. 1. Lake Elmo Market is at 11025 10th St. N.
