Upcoming Events in Old North include North City Farmers’ Market End of Season Celebration, Metro Theater Co. Play, and Cinema St. Louis Film

The next 9 days will bring a steady stream of events and activities to Old North.

On Thursday the 14th, the Old North Grocery Co-op will hold its first official meeting for Member-Owners (and you can join us for that — all you have to do is join the co-op!  Visit the Membership Page at to join online or to download a membership form).

On Friday, October 15th, the St. Louis Beacon will bring “Beacon & Eggs” to the Old North Gallery.  This event, scheduled to start at 8 a.m., includes an opportunity to meet editors and staff from the Beacon prior to an hour-hour long panel discussion on the topic of Old North’s current wave of development and recent activities.  Panelists include Sean Thomas, ONSLRG’s executive director; Claire Wolff of the Urban Studio Cafe; Avis Laden from Habitat for Humanity St. Louis; and Ebony Wilson, who will be opening Therapy, a new fashion boutique at 2717 N. 14th this week.

On Saturday, October 16, the North City Farmers’ Market will hold the last market day of the season from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. along N. 14th Street just south of St. Louis Avenue.  If you haven’t been to the market this year, don’t miss this last opportunity in 2010 to experience one of America’s “Top 20″ Favorite Markets, especially since the season-end celebration will include a battle of celebrity chefs (Brian Hale from the Chase Park Plaza vs. award-winning chef Jack MacMurray of Sage restaurant), a Brownie Competition (bring out your best brownies and you could win a fancy dinner prepared by our own Chef Ivy!), a Cactus Display by local artist Seitu, and live music by Raw Earth, a Gardening Class on the topic of “Preparing for next year”, PLUS crafts, baked goods, and LOCAL PRODUCE!

On both Saturday the 16th and Sunday the 17th, at 1 p.m., Metro Theater Company will bring the play, Delilah’s Wish, to the Old North Gallery.  The play, which is set in Old North St. Louis, features local playwrite and actress Mariah Richardson in the family-friendly performance.  The play is free (although a $5 contribution is requested to help offset the costs).

At 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 21, ONSLRG and Trailnet will co-host a community meeting at the the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group office and gallery on the topic of the planning for a Bikeable & Walkable Master Plan for Old North.  Come on out to see how the plan is coming together and to offer your ideas and suggestions for making improvements to the sidewalks, streets, and other paths throughout the neighborhood.

On Friday, October 22nd at 7 p.m., the Old North Gallery will open its doors for another free film brought to us through a partnership of ONSLRG and Cinema St. Louis.  The October feature is a Halloween treat, the animated film, “Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.”  The movie starts at 7 p.m.
