The Fest with the Best 

If it's early fall, it must be time for the Best of Missouri Market & More. You know it, pilgrim. This annual blowout held at the Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard; 314-577-5100 or is as reliable a harbinger of autumn's advent as jackets being plucked out of closets and the onslaught of pumpkin-flavored everything. This year's edition takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (October 4 and 5). Well over 100 food producers and craftspeople from all over Missouri and our neighboring region display and sell fresh produce, baked items, flowers (both fresh and dried), herbs, handcrafted goods, baskets, wooden toys and lots more. In addition there's live music courtesy of the Ladue Mountain Boys nearly all day today. This rain-or-shine event is always a good time for everybody of any age, and admission is $5 to $12.
Sat., Oct. 4, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 5, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 2014
