Outpost Natural Foods has opened the new Outpost Market Café in the lobby of the Aurora Sinai Medical Center, in Milwaukee.
Outpost’s Market Café offers a variety of signature, made-from-scratch Outpost-prepared food items, including baked goods, sandwiches, soups, salads and entrées. The kiosk also will offer hot coffee and tea, juices and a limited selection of fresh and non-perishable staple grocery items, such as milk and dairy products, eggs, produce, bread, bulk items, convenient center-aisle foods and bagged coffee. As with Outpost’s other full-service grocery stores, many of these items will come from Wisconsin growers and producers.
Outpost Community Relations Director Margaret Mittelstadt says the café is a natural extension of the strong mission and good will of both organizations. “Outpost’s vision is to create a healthy, diverse and sustainable community,” she says. “Having the new Market Café in the lobby of Aurora Sinai Medical Center creates a hub for both organizations to celebrate their commitment to the goodness of wholesome food and friendly service in a welcoming environment.” Bringing Outpost to the medical center also has been a positive development for caregivers and visitors, according to Aurora Sinai Nutrition Services Manager Janine Bamberger. “We look forward to expanding our relationship,” Bamberger says. “We are thrilled with the healthy connections that it continues to foster between farmers, food, caregivers and the community we serve.”
The Market Café will serve hospital staff, patients and visitors, as well as people in the surrounding community, including residents of the Avenues West neighborhood, Marquette University, the Pabst Brewery development and the Milwaukee County Courthouse.
