Middle Town Market

GREAT stuff to eat! GREAT stuff to buy!

presented by

Each week through the summer, an area near Lake George in St. Cloud, MN called Middle Town Market comes to life. The Middle Town Market has grown to become an unforgettable experience of local food and vendors. From smoky BBQ, fresh sandwiches, super sweet sweets, to hand-crafted artistry and one-of-a-kind merchandise, you can spend hours walking through the aisles.

Stroll through Middle Town Market at SBG! and take in the sizzle, intoxicating smells of the grills, and smiles from the crowds as mango-pepper salsa from your walleye tacos drips down your chin. This list of food vendors is not updated weekly and it does not fully depict how delicious, festive, and affordable the food really is! You’ll have to come down to Lake George on Wednesday evenings to truly understand.
