Owamni Restaurant with drum written

It can be tough to get a reservation at Owamni, chef Sean Sherman’s in-demand restaurant, but his latest venture doesn’t require advance planning. The Indigenous Food Lab Market is open Monday through Saturday and features a hot-meal bar and a tea counter staffed by an herbal specialist. Located within Midtown Global Market, the meal counter serves grain bowls and tacos with bison, whitefish, squash and more. The market also sells Native art and pantry items as part of its mission, in association with NĀTIFS (North American Traditional Indigenous Food Systems), to promote Indigenous food sovereignty and commerce opportunities.
