Featuring Our Own:
Mi Pueblito Grocery Store & Meat Market
Location Map - click here
120 Central Ave, Long Prairie, MN 56347
HOURS: Monday closed
On Central Avenue, there is a Mexican grocery store, meat market and restaurant, all together in one building. The grocery store opened in 2012 and the restaurant in 2016. The restaurant and the meat market seem to be the best kept secret because if you would like to visit either, you have to go past the store's cash register and cashier, Jose Garcia, down a few steps and proceed to your right to find the meat market. To find the restaurant, you have to continue right about 20 paces.
Gio Garcia, Jose Garcia, Vera Garcia and Heizel Fuentes

Grocery Store & Vegetable Market
The restaurant walls are decorated with murals with themes from the Mexican culture, history and architecture.
Gio & David (not pictured) are the cooks and Vera is your waitress.
The service is friendly and Gio likes to visit with his guests when he has finished his orders.
The store also carries anything from Piñatas to boots.
