How do I prevent a location from being matched by the ssl rewrite?

server {
        listen      80;

        location = /feeds/ {

        rewrite     ^   https://$server_name$request_uri? permanent;
server {
        listen 443;

Put the rewrite in a location block. nginx only applies one location block at each level, so if /feeds/ is matched the other block won't be applied:

location / {
    rewrite     ^   https://$server_name$request_uri? permanent;
