Soulard Farmers' Market

730 Carroll St St. Louis, MO 63104 | St. Louis - Soulard | 314-622-4180

Location Description:

Soulard's historic Soulard Farmers' Market has its roots way back in 1779 when farmers would gather in the area to sell and trade their wares. Today, the tradition continues, featuring everything from freshly fried mini donuts and perfumed soap to freshly butchered coon and locally-farmed produce. Open year round, the market's four wings and "Grand Hall" vary depending on the day and time you stop in. For the best bet and largest selection, head in early on a Saturday when it is at its busiest -- and don't forget to grab a bloody mary. Though if you wait until the last minute, you're likely to score some choice discounts for an entirely different experience.
