Photos From the First Two Weeks

Opening day started out gorgeous, if a little cloudy. As far as markets go, North City's arguably has the best view in St. Louis nestled between newly restored beautiful brick buildings, with a commanding view of the Gateway Arch.

Many neighbors, young and old, came to buy some fresh goodies. The farmers' market is more than just a place to buy healthy and affordable food, it's also a place to bring the family, hang out, and listen to some local music. Every Saturday is a mini festival.

We also have as many as 20 vendors a week, selling greens, pastries, bread, and flowers. This year we even have seeds and starters from City House Country Mouse, who is new with us this year.

Unfortunately, we had to close a little early. As this photo clearly shows, we got a light drizzling on opening day. In the future, on rainy days, markets will be held inside the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group's office at 2700 North 14th Street, just south of the usual market space.

Day 2, June 14th, was much sunnier and warmer. We even had hula hooping lessons. Energizing Enterprises will be with us every Saturday, selling hula hoops to help you stay fit!

Our local neighborhood coffee shop, La Mancha Coffeehouse, will be selling pastries and beverages every Saturday, as well.

It's been a fun 2 weeks, with 18 more to go! I hope these photos have convinced you to come on down and see what the North City Farmers' Market is all about. And remember, Saturdays 10-1 in Crown Square!

  1. These photos from the first two weeks are absolutely breathtaking! I could totally agree that North City has the best view in St. Louis. It's so nice when neighbors, young and old, come together to buy such fresh and yummy goodness. My family looks forward to every Saturday for the farmers market in our town. Slowly we are starting to get more and more vendors coming into our farmers market. Sorry to hear you had to close the farmers market a little early do to the rain. I hope to visit this farmers market soon! All the best! :)
