Scenes from a Farmers' Market

It's springtime in St. Louis, which means that farmers' markets across the metro are open for business.  Of course, the Soulard Farmers' Market is the oldest and best-known market in town, and is where all of the following photos were taken.

There are plenty of other markets worth checking out, though, giving St. Louisans an opportunity to explore neighborhoods all over the region.  Be sure to check out the North City Farmers' Market (in Old North), the Tower Grove Farmers' Market, The Market in the Loop, and the Clayton Farmers' Market.  Of course, that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Here was the scene at yesterday's market in Soulard. Of course, the star of the show is the huge selection of fruits, vegetables, and other wares:

Musicians are a common staple of the farmers' market scene . . .

 And, of course, the diverse crowds at farmers' markets offer great "people watching" opportunities.

What's your favorite farmers' market in St. Louis?

  1. My favorite is Tower Grove; they have a good selection of cheese there, chocolates and gelato in addition to produce.
