Our Story

Market House by D’Amico pays tribute to the first Saint Paul public market, built in 1852.  The Market House experience connects you to Minnesota’s past and present agricultural movement featuring a cafe menu that is inspired by the local farmers market and sourced from our favorite purveyors. Our newly remodeled cafe offers fresh, authentic and healthy lunch, snacks and specials to keep you energized throughout your museum visit.

When D’Amico was awarded the prestigious Minnesota History Center and Market House by D’Amico, one obvious chef choice stood out: Josh Brown. He’d already earned stripes at Campiello, Masa, the Calhoun Beach Club, Walker Art Center and more.
Josh has worked with Wolfgang Puck and Jean-Georges Vongerichten—and was our opening chef at Le Meridien Chambers Minneapolis. His personable skills match his culinary talents. So he proudly makes time to be “on the floor,” cheerfully ensuring total guest satisfaction.
