Old North Farmers Market

The first of the weekly North City Farmers’ Markets was held this past Saturday on the soon to be redeveloped 14th street mall at the intersection of 14th and St. Louis (across the street from Crown Candy). The opening day was successful. Come back this Saturday, and every Saturday through October from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh bread, and other products. The Urban Studio is also providing entertainment and activities for children. The North City Farmers Market is produced thanks to a grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health and the initiative of the folks at New Roots Urban Farm, in collaboration with ONSLRG and several other community groups.
