In early February, Eat.Drink.Dish MPLS was invited to The Food Building, located on Marshall St. and 14th in Northeast Minneapolis, for a more in depth and behind the scenes view and taste. To get your own view, check out our photo gallery:

The Food Building houses three different vendors in its space: Red Table Meat Co, making salumi from Minnesota pasture raised pigs; Baker's Field Flour and Bread, milling their flour and baking onsite; and The Lone Grazer Creamery, making delicious cheese from Minnesota grass fed cows.
But the transparency at the Food Building doesn't stop with where its food comes from, but it's open for tours, allowing you to see the behind the scenes view of salumi making or bread baking. Whether you come for a self guided tour, or opt for a guided tour and a tasting, peaking into the windows gives a great idea of what these businesses do on the daily.
After you go on a tour, there's a good chance you'll want to spend even more time in the industrially trendy space, but not to worry. The Food Building is available for rent, for parties and events, with plenty of meeting space. Choose from the entire building, or just a single room-- the Bubble Hall or the Tasting Room-- for your next locally based event.
