Celebrating Another Successful Season of the North City Farmers’ Market

We’ve had a lot going on over the past few weeks, so it’ll take a few days’ worth of posts to get everything up to date. So, today we’ll focus on the North City Farmers’ Market, which held the last market day of the 2008 season on October 25.

The following link will take you to a short, minute-and-a-half long video from the closing celebration, including live music from Rum Drum Ramblers:
Among the highlights of this year’s market…
Great leadership from Market Master Julia Weese-Young and Project Coordinator Lucas Hudson…

Cooking demonstrations - and delicious samples! - courtesy of our favorite chef, Euylan Welch… Fresh produce from the Burning Kumquat farm at Washington University… Ray Ray from City Seeds Urban Farm… Stephen Inman at the New Roots Urban Farm table… Bruce Smith, with the last loaf of bread from Black Bear Bakery… Watermelons and greens from Clarence Rudolph’s farm in Wayne City, Illinois…
Gail Havens’ gourds…
the return of the Holden Family’s Alien Coffee and baked goods…

Story-telling for children with Mama Hudson…and the ever-popular bicycle raffle…

Now that the 2008 season is behind us, we’re thrilled to announce that the Missouri Foundation for Health has approved a new grant to the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group to help us bring the North City Farmers’ Market back for the next three seasons! All of us at ONSLRG and the satisfied customers of the market extend a huge “thank you” to the Missouri Foundation for Health for making the past two years of the market possible and for guaranteeing the return of the market through the 2011 season!
