I love to go on Saturdays at the market. Where else can you peruse local produce and drink a Bloody Mary at the same time. Great vendors and selection. Get there early to get a decent parking spot, otherwise you might have a bit of a walk.

Where else can you stroll a market with a Bloody Mary? This is really a great market and you can find good deals. I do take issue with the name implying that it is farmers..there are some farmers but there are also tons of produce vendors and flea market vendors. You will find good, inexpensive seasonal farm products and I... More

First, the market isn't particularly large, though it is crowded. Probably a third of the stalls are flea market stuff (i.e. cheap handbags, etc.) It's next to a playground and park that is overrun with garbage, discarded alcohol bottles and the like. I did not feel particularly safe. (You would think the local business community would have insisted by now... More

We at the market are truly sorry that we didn't live up to your expectations. We are currently in the planning stages of a complete renovation of the market and the market park and hopefully the next time you visit St. Louis you will be able to enjoy yourself more. More

Soulard Market is a very classic farmers market. You can get fresh vegetables and fruit as well as meats and seafood. Great quality at good prices. You can find the traditional as well as 'always wanted to try it' items. You can haggle with some vendors. Get a bloody mary and explore!

The Soulard Farmers Market is a fascinating place to visit and procure the freshest vegetables, flowers, meats and much more. Unlike many markets that quickly digress into flea markets full of third rate trinkets and imported knock offs, the Soulard Farmers Market stays true to its name. There is the occasional soap or sunglass stand, but mostly good old fashioned... More

Comparing this to the Pike Place Market in Seattle is like night and day. Pike Place is trendy, Soulard is a real market with real prices. I love visiting Soulard market when I am here.

Soulard is an old, historic market in downtown St. Louis. Be sure to come on Friday or Saturday to have the most vendors and the best selections. Free parking across the street. You name it and more than likely you will find it at Soulards! From fresh produce, to meats, cheeses, flowers and much, much more! I love to wander... More

This has all the diversity of a farmers market and Casbah in Morroco or Shanghi China. Funky, friendly and lot of fun. The fresh veg and meats are excellent. really nice place to visit.

Soulard has a very large market, with a great variety of produce and other goods for sale. It's all enclosed, so weather shouldn't affect the turnout or selection. The building is laid out in an "H" floorplan, with each of the legs of the "H" divided into 2 halls. The connector between the legs has some fast food and knicknack... More

My wife and I visited the Soulard market on a Saturday morning, which is most likely the busiest time. It was wall-to-wall people, but was worth it for us. There are some t-shirt and trinket type stands, but the majority of this is produce. The variety is excellent and the prices vary from cheap to super cheap. Many stands will... More
