Soulard Farmers Market – Revisited

As summer fades into the sunset and the basil begins to wilt in my garden, let’s take another look at the bounties of Soulard Market. After previously doing a post on the market in which I complained about the slim pickin’s, I decided to give the market a second look a few weeks ago, this time on a Saturday rather than a Wednesday. What I found was a bustling market w/ farmers and customers galore! What a difference a day makes!!

Here are a few photos from my recent visit…

The new fish store at the market that was under construction is now open for business too…

On a farm somewhere in Missouri, a Farmgirl is still managing to squeeze out some nice crops (see her Oct. 14th post) so I guess even now you might find some farm fresh goodies at Soulard Market!

Until next time, some words to ponder: Water separates the people of the world, food unites them… and so does a nice glass of wine, perhaps a hardy zinfandel!!

    It does look like a wonderful market. Ours is closed now. Sigh.

    I’ve been a Soulard fan for years but the last couple of weeks have been going to Tower Grove: this morning is the last market, maybe I’ll see you there?

    Kalyn – I’m now convinced it’s a great market and it’s open year round!

    Alanna – Haven’t been to the Tower Grove market yet… looks like it’ll have to wait until next year. Hope you find some nice stuff there!

    Me again! I just tagged all the St. Louis food bloggers for the “food bloggers come to dinner” meme, but no pressure, only if you have time and think it sounds fun.

    All that produce looks amazing, what variety! I love farmers markets.

    Kalyn – Thanks for the tag… will “cook dinner” when I get back in town…

    Ari – The produce selection was great… I picked a good day to visit the market!

    Bruno- I chose your Twisted Oat Bread to recreate for the World Bread Day After Party. You can hope on over to my blog to see how I destroyed your delicious looking bread!
