Market House by D'Amico

Fried chicken sandwich with fries

Market House by D’Amico pays tribute to the first Saint Paul public market, built in 1852. The Market House experience connects you to Minnesota’s past and present agricultural movement featuring a cafe menu that is inspired by the local farmers market and sourced from our favorite purveyors. Our newly remodeled cafe offers fresh, authentic and healthy lunch, snacks and specials to keep you energized throughout your museum visit.
