This old Sears and Roebuck’s building has rebounded for the community and became Midtown Global Market on E. Lake St.

Inside are markets and restaurants such as Moroccan Flavors. Owner Raja stirred her aromatic hot dishes and then poured me a cup of mint tea which was unlike any mint tea I’ve had.

Then I met Peggy at The Produce Exchange and learned the University of Minnesota developed honey crisp apples. What, it didn’t come from Julian or Wash? Oh no, the horticultural program has an apple breeding program and Minn grows apples and more!

When you visit the Global Market, you won’t leave hungry!
