Tour: Markets and Communities

Immigrants and refugees in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area have long created and been sustained by marketplaces. Rich with traditional foods, clothing, music, art, and materials for magic, healing, and religion, these are key social spaces, and are vital sources for culturally significant goods. This tour will visit four such markets.

Tour: Community Cultural Anchors: Neighborhood Foodways

This tour offers an opportunity to explore some of the vibrant neighborhood’s foodways and cultural centers that support the ongoing continuity of cultural traditions and expression. Participants will enjoy Nordic, Somali and First Nations' coffee/tea and pastry favorites as they learn about the cultural anchors serving these communities.
