Hmong Village on the East Side
Hmong Village will open next Saturday at 1001 Johnson Parkway, giving St Paul their own sort-of Midtown Global Market. While most of the vendors are Hmong there will be Mexican, Somali, Thai and Vietnamese merchants, too. You’ll find local produce available in 35 booths, 17 restaurants and 230 merchant stalls offering everything from clothing and electronics to an arcade. The people behind the Village also hope to see it become a gathering spot and community center for the neighborhood.
