July 14th at the Market

This Saturday, July 14th is sure to be a fun day for families and friends at the North City Farmers' Market.  The St. Louis Children's Hospital will be on-site throughout the market hosting a Reusable Grocery Bag Decorating activity.  Kids can color a reusable grocery bag for parents to use every time they shop. It's a unique way to display your child's artwork while helping the environment!  This activity is free and open to the public.

Cooking Matters, a project of Operation Food Search, will be doing cooking demos from 10:30am-Noon.  This week's recipe features several produce items found at the North City Farmers' Market, including tomatoes, cucumbers, and jalepeno...that's all I can tell you for now!  To find out the rest of the ingredients, get the recipe, and try some delectable samples stop by the market from 10:30am-Noon.

And, more good news...The Friendly Henrys will be performing at the market from 9am-Noon.  If you missed them June 30th, you do not want to miss them again.  This bluegrass/folksy trio will lift your spirits and soothe your soul.  The name "friendly" suits them well.  You may need to be reminded that you are still in the city, not enjoying a day in the country listening to your family or friends strumming and singing their favorite tunes.  

And, of course, there will be many local produce, crafts, and foods vendors to choose from, as well.  This week we welcome a new vendor: Freddie Lee's Ghetto Sauce will be selling their gourmet barbecue and dipping sauces.  If you have not had it before, be sure to stop by the Freddie Lee's Ghetto Sauce booth for some samplings of polish and chicken breasts, chips with dip and more.  Zee Bee Market will be selling Fair Trade and eco-friendly gifts (I love my new earrings!).  MK Produce will have their lovely tomatoes.  The Burning Kumquat, Washington University's student-run farm, will be here.  Pick up your local jams, honeys, peanut butter, meats, and cheeses from the Old North Grocery Co-op booth.  And much, much more!

We hope to see you on Saturday.  The market operates from 9am-Noon every Saturday June through mid-October.  In the event of rain, we will locate inside the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group Gallery at 2700 North 14th St.
