Golden’s Lowertown, Saint Paul, MN, 7 September 2017—Twenty years since opening a permanent Lowertown deli location on Wall Street, between 4th and 5th streets, Golden’s is closing its restaurant doors to return to doing what we do best—selling fresh bagels made with ingredients from local farms! While Golden’s restaurant is closed permanently as of today, Golden’s Market Bagel Stand can be found at the top end of the middle green shed in the summer Saint Paul Farmers’ Market every weekend. Come visit us for a bagel and coffee every Saturday morning from 7am-1pm and every Sunday morning from 8am-1pm! Golden’s former location, in the Northwestern Building at 275 E. 4th Street, will see a new restaurant open later this Fall. Lowertown neighbor and Union Depot resident Kari Richtsmeier will debut Biergarten Germania, featuring cuisines from the historic region of Germania, offering a variety of dishes from Germany, Switzerland, France, and the Netherlands.
Golden’s Farmers’ Market Bagel Stand can be found at the Saint Paul Farmers’ Market in Lowertown, St Paul, MN 55101 • Saturday 7 a.m.-1 p.m • Sunday 8 a.m.-1 p.m. • (651) 224-8888
In the Press
Owner Jim Golden uses vegetables from the market when possible and locally raised eggs and ham from vendors who are “just across the aisle.” In the past few years, Golden has begun to offer brats and hot dogs from Prairie Pride Farm, which also supplies Golden’s ham. The brats — plump, juicy and perfectly spiced — pass muster with this Wisconsin native. Topped with a little sauerkraut and some spicy mustard, they are a great lunch if you manage to save enough room. Golden’s also serves a rich, strong cold-press coffee made with Cafe Palmira beans and the best lemonade in the Twin Cities — freshly squeezed, tart and not too sweet.
