Sue Z.’s Picks: Where to Find Free JonnyPops in Minneapolis

Swing by Midtown Global Market later this month for a series of special events


Stopping in at the Midtown Global Market is always like taking an international getaway.

Throughout the rest of July, the south Minneapolis destination has a series of special events that include live music, art, cooking tips, and free frozen treats.

For Saturday, July 17, the Global Art Pop Up Art Show & Sale brings together the work of several talented local artists from the Art Shoppe, as well as music by Matt Yetter.

Hot Indian executive chef Janene Holig hosts a virtual cooking class to prepare Murgh Makhani (Butter Chicken), Basmati Rice, and Garlic Naan on Monday, July, 19.

Then, on Saturday, July 24, the first 1,000 visitors will receive a free frozen treat from Minnesota’s own JonnyPops. (The company recently started making dairy-free treats.) The event is tied to the return of the Minneapolis Aquatennial.

Check in on Sunday, July 25, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the Blood Drive with the Memorial Blood Centers. You need to schedule your donations time in advance on line at and enter the sponsor code 4915 or call MBC at 1-888-GIVE-BLD. If you give blood, you will be entered to win Minnesota State Fair tickets.
