GALLERY: New Foods At Target Field 2022

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- Opening Day is nearly here and the Minnesota Twins are unveiling new foods at Target Field, including Australian-inspired savory pies and an official grilled cheese sandwich of the ballpark.

The "Taste of the Twins" showcase returned after a two-year hiatus and is part of a larger Twins event that revealed what's new at the ballpark.

Some of the notable ballpark enhancements include a newly renovated UnitedHealthcare Sensory Suite for neuroatypical fans. There's also a new grab-and-go store called The Market, featuring a walk-in cooler with an extensive selection of craft beers.

Now, back to the food. The new selection includes partnerships with Blue Door Pub, La Tapatia, Hot Indian and more.

Here's the list of the Twins' local partners and new food items for the year:

  • Mac's Fish (Minneapolis): A longtime Target Field partner brings its hand-battered walleye with sea salt and jalapeño-lime tartar sauce. Served with French fries. Available at Townball Tavern.
