Opening Day Saturday for North City Farmers’ Market

Come on out on Saturday (June 6) for the opening of the 3rd season of the North City Farmers’ Market.   The festivities will last throughout the market’s regular hours, 9 a.m. - noon, along the south side of St. Louis Avenue and N. 14th Street, right across the street from Crown Candy Kitchen.

The main attraction, this week and every Saturday morning from now until Oct. 31, will be lots of healthy and affordable produce, some of it fresh from the farm (including our own 13th Street Community Garden).  The celebration will include toe-tapping music with The Dock Ellis Band and up-and-coming R & B artist, LeAndra RaynesChef Euylan will be back again with cooking demonstrations, with Old-school Brick Chicken and mouth-watering, grilled peaches on the menu for this week.

Other activities will include face-painting, storytelling, and beginner French and Spanish lessons for kids.  So, bring the whole family for a great community event and a wonderful season of healthy eating in Old North.

The North City Farmers’ Market is a project of the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group and is made possible through generous support from the Missouri Foundation for Health.
