West End Market Prepares For State Fair Debut

View Comments

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota State Fair will be opening in three weeks, and this Thursday WCCO got a look at one of their newest features – the West End Market.

The area of the fairgrounds that houses the market used be called Heritage Square.

Some of the market’s features include a new museum building that will allow visitors to celebrate State Fair history, and a new transit hub that will ease bus and pedestrian traffic.

Most of the West End will be devoted to merchandise and food vendors.

“Think like fried chicken, in a home-made waffle cone, with a sausage gravy.  We’re going to do Iron Range perogies, and then we are going to do a brownie with a little bit of bacon and a salted caramel sauce,” The Blue Barn’s Stephanie Shimp said.

Opening day for the Minnesota State Fair is Thursday, Aug. 21.
