Family Fun: Wee Wednesdays at Midtown Global Market

midtown global market cowles center for dance Wee Wednesdays

Wee Wednesdays at Midtown Global Market has the potential to be a great morning outing this fall – especially if the cooler temps are moving you indoors. The program’s got all the elements of a power playdate: a (free!) structured group activity (dance class, puppet show, cooking lesson), more than 20 ethnic vendors offering lunch, and an enclosed play area where the little ones can mingle and parents can chat. The event, designed for ages 5 and under, begins at 10:30 at the market stage and runs about 45 minutes, making it very convenient to then grab lunch and play a bit before the youngins start to yawn.

Now that I’ve gone and promoted the program, a word of caution: it might be wise to read up a little on the food vendors before you go. I’ve had some good meals at the market (Manny’s Tortas and Holy Land Deli come to mind), but at least one dreadful lunch as well. It’s possible to read reviews of most of the vendors by clicking on their links in the merchant directory. Several offer special deals on Wednesday until 1 p.m. Also, if you eat or shop at the market make sure to get your parking ticket validated! Three hours of parking in the adjacent lot is allegedly free with purchase (though, aggravatingly, and for no apparent reason, the validation didn’t work on my last visit.) I should also mention that when we visited, the kids’ play area was quite careworn, you might say.

If you’ve had a memorable time eating, shopping or playing at Midtown Global Market recently, we’d love to hear about it in the comments!
