I seem to stumble on places that align with my cultural identity in an almost serendipitous way.

Hmong International Marketplace is as close to being in South East Asia as you can get.

I have found most of the culturally specific spaces via local publications like Insight News or Spokesman Recorder (Black/African American), CLUES or La Voz Latina (Latino/a), Asian American Press, The Circle (American Indian), Lavender (LGBTQ)

I seem to stumble on places that align with my cultural identity in an almost serendipitous way. Just last month I was meeting friends at a restaurant and it just so happened to be directly across from my new favorite Asian market – one that has the exact bakery items I have been hunting for almost a year!

Hmong International Marketplace is my favorite “I’m not in Minnesota anymore” place – it’s as close to being in South East Asia as you can get. Hmong vendors sell crafts, veggies, herbs, clothing, household goods, holiday necessities – for themselves, not for tourists. You run into Hmong grandmas in their embroidered dress and find veggies you’ve never seen.

Did you know?

Minnesotans speak more than 100 languages at home, led by Spanish, Hmong, and Cushite.
