OSSEO, Minn — Osseo sits in a unique spot in the Twin Cities because it's exactly one square mile and surrounded by larger cities Brooklyn Park and Maple Grove. It was established in 1875.
It's known for it's locally-owned businesses like Dean's Super Market and the Painted Turtle Chocolatier where they make everything by hand.

"It's got an incredibly huge sense of community, everybody kind of pulls together, its the classic small town feel in the middle of all of these ginormous suburbs. Its just that sense of community that really makes everyone come here and continues to make this city a high demand for people who live here," said Mark Schulz, a city council member for Osseo.
We also went to Osseo Meat Market and Deli where you'll not only find meat, but also antiques.
