It was a great day in Old North for the opening of the sixth season of the North City Farmers’ Market. Thanks to all who came out to take advantage of the opportunity to buy fresh fruits and vegetables, pastries, breads, and other locally produced foods, crafts, jewelry, and other unique items - and thanks to all of the vendors who brought their products to the market today. Special thanks also go to the many residents and friends of Old North who put in the time and effort to set up for the day, serve as volunteer vendors, and take down at the end of the market day.
A special feature at today’s market was a visit by Saint Louis Caledonian Pipe Band, who generously contributed their time and musical talents to entertain the market’s customers and vendors (thanks to Sarah Kate Buckles and her mother for making the arrangements).
Visitors were invited to let us know how they learned about the market and to provide their feedback on the types of vendors and activities they’d like to see at future markets. If you didn’t get a chance to register your thoughts, let us know by commenting on this page or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And finally, we extend our gratitude to ONSLRG’s interns and practicum students for handling major portions of the work in preparing for the season and coordinating much of the work today. Shown above are Nic Hutchison (from Missouri State University), Michelle Wiegand (of Washington University), and Michelle’s friend Nate. Not in the picture but also helping today was Jennifer Gray, practicum student from St. Louis University and Lindsey Forsythe (also of Washington University).
