The Soulard Farmer's Market is open from Wednesday through Saturday. Go to the website for hours and also it lists the number of vendors on a typical day. For example, they said only 9 vendors come on Wednesday. My daughter and I went on a Friday afternoon and it wasn't crowded at all. I heard that Saturdays can be a... More

If Google maps could provide accurate highway onramp directions, I would have completely missed this market and been on my way down the road. Good thing I was lost - I unexpectedly ran right into Soulard Farmers Market which is a really neat combination open air and indoor market. Chock full of local produce selections, cheeses, meats, candles, soaps, incense,... More

After lunch at Bogart's, stroll across the street for fresh vegetables at bargains prices. Many many vendors...fresh fruit and vegetables...other goods ... jelly and sauces and Goose Poop for sale. The mini donuts are delicious...bloody Mary's are sold by one vendor...fresh meats...kettle corn...you want it, they got it.

I had to look it up.... this place is very very historic. I enjoyed my visit, and there are many choices for food, and lots of your typical farmers market items to buy. all under a roof. there are butcher shops, amish goods, on and on. I enjoyed browsing the market.

The Soulard Market is fabulous and a real treat for both the eyes and dinner table. Vendor booths were stocked with seasonal vegetables, most reasonably priced or cheap! Since we weren't heading home, we had to forego the meat markets and deli, but did select a few veges and fruits. Altho many of the vendors offered the same items, you... More

I would say that if you can't find it at the Soulard Market, you probably don't need it! Great place for produce, people watching, and a huge variety of food and other items to choose from. You can even get a bloody Mary or margarita and listen to some live music while noshing on a sack of fresh, hot mini-donuts... More

When ever my husband and I go to St Louis to see the Cardinals play, this is must stop. The spice shop is small but they have any spice you could think of and it is worth the wait. Any local would tell you that is the place to go, they are very friendly and they are priced really well.... More

It was a really nice experience. I'm from a small town in Missouri and we do not have farmers market like this. I loved buying flowers and making my own assortment!!

We arrived at Soulard Farmer’s Market at 7:40am on a Saturday. This allowed us to find free street parking as close as possible on Lafayette and 8th Street. A few shops were not opened yet but majority were ready for business. There was no crowd allowing us to easily walk the aisles. Samples were offered throughout the market. We bought... More

The local (emphasis on local) produce is great. Stuff from outside the area was no better or worse than the grocery store. The local bakeries are even better. You can even get meat, donuts, cakes and candied nuts. It does not have anything exotic, that we saw. It only took a couple hours to make a few passes through the... More
