Come to the Market

Please take the opportunity to come visit the market and support the vendors.

These are the days of transition. We are still in the late summer harvest and the beginning of fall produce. The seasonal summer produce is slowly coming to an end. We will still have tomatoes, summer squash, peppers, eggplant and melons and much more. The last tastes of sunshine and hot weather!! And fall is just around the corner. The days are getting shorter. The apples and apple cider have been coming in the last few weeks and will continue to do so. Ringhausen Orchards and Blue Heron have ciders and apples. Farrar Out Farms is taking orders and deposits for their holiday turkeys.

Slow Food St Louis and EarthDance Farm will be joining us this week. Stop by their tents and learn about the programs, activities and fundraisers that are taking place in our community. Purchase your tickets for the EarthDance Farmers Formal. Plan to stay after market and join Slow Food in the Bottleworks Crown Room for the monthly SloWednesday program that includes the movie “Eating Alabama”. SloWednesdays are sponsored and supported by Chipotle Mexican Grill and Schlafly Bottleworks.

Market begins at 4pm and we request that no purchases are made until the bell rings. We appreciate your cooperation

Thank you for your continued support.

We will continue to host the University of Missouri Extension Nutrition department. They will be visiting with us throughout the market season sharing information about local, seasonal, food, healthy and nutritious food options, recipes and more. Visit the site Family Nutrition Education Program
