A perfect Saturday morning of errand-running between April and October begins at the Ferguson Farmers' Market, a mile or so north of I-70 on South Florissant Road. There, next to the gazebo on the Ferguson Victorian Plaza, awaits the bounty picked just a few hours prior by at least a dozen local farmers. From sunflower shoots to black raspberries, zucchini to spring onions, it's both a familiar and exotic mix of fruits and vegetables, not to mention farm-fresh eggs, pecans and goat. Great Harvest Baking Company hawks its delicious all-natural loaves, and for the hungry-on-arrival, there are honey sticks and sno-cones, omelets and brats. Most market mornings (8 a.m. to noon) feature a theme — Garlic Gala, All-American Pie Day, Pumpkin Bazaar — as well as cooling mist machines during the hot summer months. There's more-than-ample parking adjacent to the plaza, and the farmers, quite frankly, couldn't appear cheerier — surely just two of the many reasons the state Department of Agriculture twice named Ferguson "Missouri Farmers' Market of the Year."
