Grand Opening Celebration THIS SATURDAY for North City Farmers’ Market

Come on out to celebrate the opening of the second season of the North City Farmers’ Market at the corner of North 14th Street and St. Louis Avenue, right in the heart of Old North St. Louis.
As advertised on the flyer above, we’ll have live music provided by legendary jazz and blues musicians, Eric McSpadden and Margaret Bianchetta, as well as singer Marlissa Hudson (not advertised on the flyer unfortunately), cooking demonstration by Alderwoman April Ford Griffin, free health screenings, and bike giveaways. Join us for the fun!

It’s hard to top the nice plug for the North City Farmers’ Market on, so you might want to click on over to that site to take a look at the good things that the impartial, outside observers at PubDef have to say about Saturday’s kick-off event.

For other updates throughout the season, check out the website for the North City Farmers’ Market, which is currently under construction but will be loaded with good information soon. Also noted on the flyer but worth mentioning again: The North City Farmers’ Market is made possible by a grant to the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group by the Missouri Foundation for Health. We can’t thank them enough for their support of this community building and healthy lifestyle-promoting initiative.
