Midtown Global Market
There's a big mall in the suburbs that swallows traffic and arrests protesters. But in the city's heart on Lake Street, there's another that embraces community with live music, international flavors, chess tables, and even a brewery. It's obvious why the Midtown Global Market is a Twin Cities standout. From falafel to tacos to Korean fare to Hot Indian, there's a taste of everything, both literally and style-wise. While celebrating the diversity of the community, Global Market embraces culture instead of hocking cell phone cases and spritzing perfume on passersby.
