The North Loop is the fastest-growing neighborhood in Minneapolis, tripling its number of residents between 2000 and 2010. Coffee shops, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and small retail stores have also moved into the neighborhood in recent years, and there are two fantastic farmers markets during the summer months. The North Loop was recognized in Forbes Magazine’s list of America’s Best Hipster Neighborhoods for its large warehouse spaces that have been converted to apartments, boutiques, and restaurants. Forbes also added: “Bike trails, a park and an arts collective also boost the hipness quotient.”
