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.

Out and about on a Saturday morning. Great place to go and shop or just look around. Fresh produce, flowers, and misc items to shop for. People watching is also a must. Felt safe in the area. Will be going back in the future.

Being a St. Louis native - we visit here often! The kids love it and I like the great deals on produce and farm fresh eggs!

Arrive early, wander among the many produce stalls, pick up a bite to eat, listen to some music and take in the entire experience! Soulard market is the oldest market west of the Mississippi River! The array of sights,sounds and scents is enticing and worth the visit. Pick up some fresh fruit and vegetables to bring home to keep savoring... More

Can't say enough good things. If you haven't been to Soulard you need to go. Beautiful, safe neighborhood. More fresh foods than you could imagine. Excellent crown & excellent company.

Some indoor shops, indoor stalls and outdoor stalls. In the interior there is a flower shop, spice shop, meat shop, bakery and a couple small concession stands selling snacks, sandwiches and coffee. There are many offerings....fresh eggs, fruits, vegetables, pasta, meat, fresh fried pork rinds, cocktails (margaritas, bloody mary's) homemade bath products, and baked goods. Prices on the produce were... More

Easily one hundred vendors here offering fresh produce, meats and sausage, live chickens, jams and honey, soap, souvenirs, etc., etc. The stalls are covered and the place was hopping on a Saturday morning. We got almost all we needed to cook a vegetable tagine and a T-shirt to boot. Prices are amazing.

Go early on a Saturday to find all possible fruits and veggies stacked up. You can even bargain. You get eggs, meat, spices, butter, dried nuts etc. Stack up for the week. Even though few vendors accept cards, it would be better if you carry enough cash. It also has an ATM inside for your need. You will see a... More

I do not think this review is fair because I visited on a Wednesday morning during the summer, but for some reason my father thought it would be a busy place despite the timing. We were wrong. Don't waste your time going if it's not Friday or Saturday. Only a few stands were open. However, we did get a pint... More

We love this market. It has a huge selection of produce. We had a great time drinking a bloody mary and taking in this historic part of Soulard. Really close to downtown, without the downtown feel. Friendly vendors with great products.

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
