Frog Town in St. Paul, Minnesota has one of the largest immigrant Hmong populations in the United States. MDM’s new FIND is the Hmong International Market, hidden across from Scheffer Playground on Como Avenue.
Hmong International Market offers traditional foods from Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, and other Asian countries in their West Building. MDM’s recommendations are the traditional Hmong sausage (slightly spicy, but delicious!), bubble tea (various flavors), and jelly drink (Nab Vam). Other indoor buildings and outside tents you will find clothing (modern and traditional), shoes, jewelry, cosmetics, arts and crafts, plants and herbs, traditional medicines, music, and more! Vendors and patrons are extremely friendly. Your senses will definitely be on overload with all the wonderful sights, smells, and sounds!
FYI: Take it easy in the parking lot! Potholes galore!
