About
Soulard Market is the oldest farmers market west of the Mississippi established in 1779 and is open Wednesday-Saturday. We have local farmers, one organic farmer, a world class bakery, spice shop, and many produce vendors that handle local and shipped in produce. 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. Our location is within a mile of Busch Stadium, Anheuser-Busch Brewery, the Gateway Arch & Riverboat Cruises, and the National Blues Museum. Our neighborhood is home to approx. 40 restaurants & bars, historic homes, and live music 7 days a week.

All of the pictures allude to a bustling, full market with tons of variety and choices. It is 11am on a Thursday and this couldn't be further from the truth. There are roughly half a dozen open stands and of those, 3 of them are shilling mass market produce. The meat, coffee/tea, and spice stands don't allow entry so there's no way of knowing what is being offered. I paid for extra time on my parking expecting to stroll around and spend a decent amount of time. What a waste. Don't bother coming here.

Went to Soulard Market early on a Wednesday afternoon only to find it pretty abandoned. Apparently the primary time to go is on the weekend from Friday to Sunday. All the produce was gone and only a few of the permanent retail spice and food shops are opened from Wednesday to Sunday.

We spent a long summer weekend in St. Louis. I was pretty excited to visit the Soulard Farmer’s Market based on what I’d read online. My online research indicated that the market would be open on a Friday.

We had a decent time…but the market itself disappointed, at least from a tourism perspective. Friday morning seemed pretty quiet; most of the booths were closed or empty, as were the small stores in the center of the market. We’d gone hoping for a late breakfast—a delicious pastry somewhere, perhaps, and some coffee. Both of those were not to be found!

That said, the vendors that were present had a nice array of produce and meats; if you were staying at a house or cooking a meal, it’d be a super-fun place to buy your ingredients. There were a fair number of locals doing their shopping.

People seemed to indicate Saturday would be a better day for things like fresh breads, flowers, etc., or grabbing a light bite. We didn’t make it back on Saturday.

Prices are great for most fresh produce. Vendors are pleasant overall. We went home happy with fresh bread, fresh fruits, fresh flowers, smoked pork chops, frozen homemade seafood canalloni and also tried a fresh tamale. We will return, as we go 2-3x per year.

Checked on Google, made sure there was no seasonal hour changes, and it clearly stated they were open Wednesday through Saturday, closed Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. We get there this morning plan on a big trip, Walking through the farmers' market, so excited. And there were literally 5 booths open. So disappointing. Please update the website that most people check.

Visited this market for the first time this last weekend. Due to it being January, not all vendors were present, but there was still an amazing variety of goods to choose, from baked goods to pasta to fresh fruits and vegetables to a wide variety of meats in the meat market. Such as shark, alligator tail, coon, frog legs, you name it! The bakery was amazing. I bought Focaccia bread and a pasta sauce. The bread was DELICIOUS! We plan to go back again!

My family and I toured the soulard Farmers Market on a very warm, muggy Saturday. However, warm and muggy as it WAS, it was so fun that I kept going from booth to booth till I had seen it all! The veggies looked great, the meat and spice markets were inviting, etc. but the mix of people was the best part...everyone having fun,looking for fresh produce and good things to eat! I'd certainly go back again and again....the vendors were friendly and the building itself was very interesting! The bathrooms were relatively clean in spite of all the foot traffic! All in all, it was delilghtful!

Soulard market is where you go on Fridays and Saturdays to grab all those fruits and veggies that are expensive at your grocery store. Just bring them home and wash them.

This is a must if you want fresh healthy foods at affordable prices.

If your a people watcher then get on down to the market it’s a genuine all sorts adventure

I went in on a Saturday and was hustled, bustled and pushed up and down the aisles with expending any of my own energy - felt a bit like a mosh pit

So hot sweaty , parched and a little disoriented we (albeit I said solo) debunked at the next exit

I returned the following Friday when half the stalls were open being the Labour Day long weekend - this time by myself

So the people watching began , casual chats with marketeers and long chat with a crew from the St Louis Fire department boot collecting for Jerry Lewises program supporting kids with muscular dystrophy-
An array of fruit and veg, some meat and deli locations , artisan breads , Bric a brac and all other things one can think of and sometimes wouldn’t

So worth a look which ever day you go but hopefully if not busy have a natter as you go

Yes - chickens! This market makes Wal-Mart look like a rip-off. Surprisingly low prices on fruits, vegetables, plants, and about anything else you might need or want. I am envious of residents living near the market. Plus live music! Fun Saturday morning.
