Best Farmers' Market St. Louis 2008 - Tower Grove Farmers' Market
Main Dr & Center Cross Dr
St. Louis, MO 63116
On a sun-drenched summer Saturday morning, the squeals and shouts of kids splashing in Tower Grove Park's wading pool are no match for the excited voices at the nearby Tower Grove Farmers' Market. "That asparagus is gorgeous." "Are strawberries here yet?" "Did I sleep too late to get the ripest tomatoes?" You'll hear that last question a lot. The market opens at 8:30 a.m., and you better believe that people are ready to pounce on fresh produce from Biver and Live Springs farms, meat from Hinkebein Hills, Greenwood and Prairie Grass Farms and, this year, artisan salume from Salume Bedu. And those are just some of the growers and vendors who draw hundreds of hungry St. Louisans every Saturday morning from early May though late October. Throw in coffee, freshly made crêpes and live music, and the Tower Grove Farmers' Market can feel less like a shopping trip and more like a party celebrating the area's remarkable bounty.
