Soulard Market is the oldest farmers market west of the Mississippi...

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.

The Soulard Farmers Market actually reminded me of the European open-air markets, which is quite a compliment. There were lots of vendors selling loads of fruits and vegetables (some were HUGE - the cabbage heads were bigger than bowling balls and some of the zucchini surely could've been used as baseball bats). Most of the produce vendors had the same... More

If it's vegetables, plants, fruts or nuts you're looking for, this place has it. Even has flowers, if that's your desire. Been going for a few years and they seem to be getting better and better. I've seen eggs, meat, live animals, and candy for sale here. On weekends is the best time to go and early in the morning.

An interesting place to visit, but very busy on a Saturday. The parking was a disaster and we were lucky to get a spot several blocks away. The produce was very reasonably priced because of all the competition in a small area, but it was just super market quality. There was very little that appeared local farm grown. Worth a... More

Soulard on the south side of downtown St. Louis is a great place to hang for a day. One of the features in their farm market, which is open Wednesday through Saturday. It is huge with a vast selection of fresh produce, as well as canned, jarred, cooked and baked goods. There are also homemade and natural body products, jewelry,... More

If your out and about or visiting St. Louis,Mo. You must stop by the famous Soulard Farmers Market. From fresh produce at pennies on the dollar of the local grocery chains to Cajun food and some of the best gooie butter cake you will ever taste. This place has it all.

We come here fairly frequently to buy our fruits, vegetables, and special treats at a better price than can be found at the store. In addition to those items, there are several small cafes including one making begnets just like you find in New Orleans. You can also find fresh fish, rabbit, duck, etc. that you don't find elsewhere. Located... More

Yes, there's historic value to this market, but not much else. There are nice spice and meat markets on the inside hard storefronts. Just about every stall had similar fruit and vegetables for sale; about 70% of the market consisted of them. The food at the Cajun stall wasn't worth the $5 per pint of gumbo or jambalaya. Same with... More

Soulard Market on an early Saturday morning has just the right amount of people and entertainment. The market was clean, the produce was fresh, and vendors were giving out samples of their wares. There was a saxophonist at one entrance and a trio playing at another. Produce prices are very good. There is a spice shop, live animals, and lots... More
