A fixture in St. Louis for more than 230 years, the Soulard Farmers Market is the oldest continuously operating farmers market west of the Mississippi – and it just gets bigger and better with age.
There’s a fabulous selection of all of the goodies you would expect at a farmers market, like fruit, vegetables, baked goods and flowers.
But you can also buy live chickens and occasionally other animals. Feel free to haggle the price. It’s just a lot more fun that way.
Don’t forget a bag of Market Mini-Donuts!
There are a flea market and craft stands and some of the most delightful characters St. Louis has to offer.
It’s open all-year and takes on a carnival-like atmosphere during the Mardi Gras season.
Several signs around downtown and on I-55 will direct you to the market, located in Soulard.
