The corner of 50th & France in Edina at the border of Southwest Minneapolis has long been a destination. Not only does it feature an array of charming shops, boutiques and services, it also has wonderful restaurants, one of the best homemade ice cream shops in the metro, a movie theater featuring independent and foreign films… and an upscale grocery store.

With brick-paved sidewalks, streets lined with flower pots and a place to relax around a fountain, this is a delightful spot to spend a leisurely afternoon shopping, eating and relaxing. It is the site of the annual Edina Art Fair the first weekend in June, of the first art fairs of the season.

I think of this corner as one of the fore-runners of the new concept of walkable urban neighborhood centers… a living example long before it became a popular trend.
