Hygge Event January 14 and 15 at Seward Co-op

Seward Food Co-op hosts its first Hygge (pronounced “hoo-ga”) event, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., on January 14 and 15. Both the Franklin Avenue and the Friendship stores will be celebrating this event. Hygge is a Danish word that describes the feeling or mood that comes from togetherness and comfort.

“Around the stores, we’ll celebrate hygge and show you how to create it in your own home, with samples from local vendors, comforting recipes to share with family and friends and simple ways to celebrate the remainder of the cold season instead of dreading it,” says Tom Vogel, marketing manager. “We’ll also raffle off a gift basket filled with gifts and treats that will bring hygge into your home.”

The Seward Co-op opened in Minneapolis in 1972. In 2015, they opened their Friendship store and the Seward Co-op Creamery Café.

Locations: Seward Co-op, 2823 E. Franklin Ave., Minneapolis. Creamery Cafe, 2601 E. Franklin Ave., Minneapolis. Friendship Store, 317 E. 38th St., Minneapolis. For more information, visit
