created as a centralized auction place to buy and sell grain. Today, it serves
general Central Business District office users, and continues to house the
grain “Trading Pit” for which it is so well known.
The Grain Exchange is located at 400 S. 4th Street in Minneapolis.
Hourly parking is available in the Haaf or Gateway ramps, which are
both accessible from 5th Ave.
