Not as big as global markets in some other cities, but this global market features a wide variety of shops and restaurants from many cultures. Clean, modern, and safe, the market is full of activity. Great lunch stop if you are visiting someone at nearby Abbott Northwestern Hospital, about a 10 minute walk away. Free parking is available with a... More

Wander through the market and pick from the cuisine of restaurants from around the world..be adventurous! We loved Mannys Tortas, Swedish coffee and hazelnut pastry. Shop for dinner or gifts in the market. A Minneapolis treasure.

The mid town global market has been around for a few years now and continues to grow. It's full of fun little kiosk/stall shops that sell art, clothes, beauty products, food, with an international theme. You can eat food from several different countries and most of it is very authentic. I like to go there for food and to pick... More

Midtown Global Market has a lot of food vendors for multiple cultures. I've never had bad food from here. If you are looking for food items and ingredients there isn't as many options. Mainly just one main shopping area. They do have little vendors selling clothes items.

If you like diversity this place is for you! How fun. There are small shops with cultural items (like clothing, accessories, candies, etc). There are also numerous food vendors with fares from all over the world. It smells fantastic in there. And to top it all off, there is East Lake Brewery in the front corner! The vendors and staff...

The market was smaller than I expected, but provided a fun afternoon adventure. Would recommend stopping by at least once to say you tried it.

Stopped by here twice while staying nearby at the Sheraton (there's a tunnel/elevators that connects the two buildings). Ate Mexican food one night, it was delicious. Wish I had more time to visit it a second time. Some shopping available from different countries and a variety of restaurants!

This is one of my favorite places to go in the Twin Cities. Plenty of diversity with international shops and restaurants cooking food from all over the globe. Prices are very reasonable, people watching is superb, and the food is excellent. Great to visit anytime.

There's a lot of stimulus here for the ears (languages a plenty), eyes, touch and taste. Be prepared to be delighted if you are up for it! Camel burgers to beautiful Moroccan textiles, it's all there. (3 Mexican places!) Lovely people and with international flair, colors, smells and beauty. Many of the food shops validate parking for 1.5 hours if... More

I have been there quite a few times and love the variety of food choices without having to drive all over town. They have so many fun events including music and dance groups and activities for the kids. Loved the Chili Contest in the Fall and we had so much fun last year on Global Soup Day and are looking...
