Farmers market pizza stand will open Minneapolis eatery

Northern Fires Pizza shared the news on Facebook.

A popular farmers market pizza stand is getting a brick-and-mortar store. 

Northern Fires Pizza announced on Facebook this month that it has found a home in Minneapolis for the "takeout pizza place that will also be a commissary for our mobile business."

The store will be at 1839 E 42nd St., where it'll serve pizzas and "whatever else we can come up with." 

The store should open in the "next couple weeks," the post says. 

Chef and owner Arie Peisert told the Star Tribune that the pizza shop is "the logical next step," adding that "The goal was to create good jobs for my employees. They commit to me all summer, but have to find other jobs in the winter. And I’ve never really bought into the whole restaurant model. This is so much more manageable, it’s not a huge and expensive footprint.”

Northern Fires Pizza has been served at the Mill City Farmers Market and the Kingfield Farmers Market, offering 12-inch wood-fired pizza made with sourdough crust and locally sourced wheat, meat, cheese and veggies. 

You might recall that 1839 E. 42nd Street was in a past life the modest home of the Colossal Cafe, which moved to a larger location in Minneapolis in 2017, closing 18 months later.

After Colossal moved out, the Dulceria Bakery moved in and traded until closing for good in February this year.
