Midtown Global Market is an internationally-themed public market with groceries, great food and unique gifts. This indoor mall has the feel of an open street market and it is good to approach your outing with that in mind. It is fun place to come as a family and they add the incentive of Wee Wednesdays and Family Fridays. They also offer annual events.

Wee Wednesdays Midtown Global Market

If you don't like crowd's Wee Wednesdays may be your answer to Family Fridays.

Family Fridays at Midtown

Family Fridays are crowded, loud and bustling. It is difficult to keep kids focused and easy to lose them. I warn of this, not to scare you off, but to prepare you. They are fun, especially in the winter when you are missing outdoor festivals. Like a festival, you can buy food (that often resembles food truck food) and sit at a table (or on the floor) to watch the entertainment of the day. You may want to employ whatever tricks you use in crowds to keep your family together and have an exit plan if its too overwhelming for a tired or sensitive child.

Getting to Midtown Global Market

Some things to note when coming as a family. This is a busy part of town. There is a parking ramp across the street that allows for up to one and half hours free parking with validation. You do need to remember to ask to be validated. There is also a lot that offers paid parking next to the mall. The traffic and parking around Midtown can both be frustrating until you've done it a few times. However, it is on a bus line, so if you are coming for a family fun outing, you may be able to work in a bus adventure, instead.
