I love fruits and veggies, in season, fresh, local, organic.  Yum!!  St. Louis is surrounded by farm land and while that can be looked at by many as a downside it does mean lots of fresh local produce and farmer’s markets with real farmers.  While I love the atmostphere of our best known market, Soulard, there are so many others to try out.

This list isn’t all of the farmers markets in St. Louis, but it’s a pretty good start.

A Guide To St. Louis Farmers Markets

1. Soulard Farmers Market: Open year round Wednesday & Thursday 8a – 5p, Friday 7a – 5p and Saturday 7a – 5:30p. 730 Caroll St. in Soulard.

Hopefully I didn’t leave your favorite off the list. As I said, this is just a beginner list, if you have one to add please post the details in the comment section.  The Missouri Department of Agriculture also keeps a list here complete with a map of all the locations.

Don’t forget your cash and happy shopping!!
