Summer in St. Louis: Have an Adventure

You choose to head to the Soulard Farmers' Market for some fresh, locally sourced food.

The Soulard Farmers Market (730 Carroll Street) has been drawing St. Louisans to the city's historic French neighborhood for nearly 250 years. That's not a typo — the market was founded in 1779, during St. Louis' brief period under Spanish rule. It's become a year-round destination, offering several quick-service eateries in addition to everything from fresh produce to a deli to a spice shop.

The abundance of nutrients found here has left you feeling energized and vigorous. Where to next?

A feast for the mind would hit the spot after that feast for the body. If you choose to thumb through some pages at Subterranean Books, turn to page 6.

Perhaps a stroll through a garden of far less edible but no less gorgeous plant life is in order? If you choose to head to the Missouri Botanical Garden, turn to page 7.
