Soulard Farmer's Market

Historic Soulard Farmer's Market, owned and operated by the city of St. Louis, is the oldest farmers market in the country.

Farmers and other vendors sell their products from a series of outdoor and indoor stalls Wednesday through Saturday.
Some stalls have been in the same family for several generations. Reminiscent of an old train terminal, the Market has two outdoor wings under roofs supported by steel girders.
The wings are linked by a building that houses butcher shops, a bakery, a spice shop and a snack shop. Each Saturday, the busiest day of the week at Soulard, the Market is a cacophony of colors and sounds with mounds of red, yellow, orange and green fruits and vegetables on display, caged live chickens and merchants yelling from their stalls. People come from all over the St. Louis area to take advantage of the Market's low prices and fresh produce.
The surrounding neighborhood has many interesting restaurants, clubs and shops.

Annual Special Events:
Each year, the Soulard neighborhood celebrates Mardi Gras just prior to the beginning of Lent, and it marks its French heritage with a Bastille Day celebration each July.

Location:
The Market is bounded by Seventh, Julia, Ninth and Carroll less than five minutes south of Downtown St. Louis.
