Soulard Market is the oldest farmers market west of the Mississippi established in 1779 and is open Wednesday-Saturday. We have 13 local farmers, 1 organic farmer, a florist and spice shop, lots of food and a bunch of produce vendors that handle local and shipped in goods. The market also carries a variety of other general merchandise like shirts, jewelry, incense, sports memorabilia, hand made soaps, carpet, photography and hand made crafts. We are open 52 weeks a year.

Checked out the Market just before noon on a Saturday. If I lived near here this would be my default store for produce for the week. Check out the cronuts at one of the bakeries. Enjoyed walking around & viewing everything they had to offer, just wish it hadn't been so hot so I could have taken more produce home.

This is clearly a big community event. There are tons of vendors and the place is packed with customers. Lots and lots of handmade soap and candles. Essential oils. Carpets, food and produce. Nothing way out of the ordinary, but a fun atmosphere to visit. Live music and great smelling food.

This is a real farmers market in a traditional market buildings. About 3/4 of the space is devoted to farm products being sold be people who look like the grow/make the product themselves. Very interesting place to walk through. Free parking. The down side? For tourist living off a suitcase, you can't buy what's offered. Too much of a good... More

We visited early in the AM and not all vendors were set up. We thought the prices were amazing and would have bought much more to bring home had we not been doing more traveling. A bag of small red potatoes was a dollar. Bing cherries were much cheaper per pound than they were here in central New York. It... More

Overpriced produce. One vendor had strawberries that had been cut in half, one was selling mildew potatoes in a bag. $8 watermelons. Not all vendors were open and it was a Saturday. Not worth the time.

We got up bright and early on a Wednesday to visit this farmers market but there was only a handful of open stores and stalls. It was a disappointment for sure. All the people there were friendly enough but it was only a shadow of what I suppose it is on the weekend. So do not go here during the... More

This place was a great surprise after Bogart's across the street. We got there as they were closing down but still could browse many of the vendor tables. It's quite large and there's even a fresh meat counter. There's a mix of fresh produce, meats, and apparel items like sports gear and other women's products. It's an odd mix but... More
