I’ll be honest, when the Tower Grove Farmer’s Market closes for the season, I’m bummed. But today, I was elated to discover the wonderful St. Louis Community Farmer’s Market, which is held once a month throughout the winter, just over on Arsenal! They are in St. John’s Episcopal Church on 3664 Arsenal (just west of Grand) on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 9am-1pm November-April. So mark your calendars for March 9th and April 13th, or follow them on Facebook to get reminded with beautiful photos of produce and goods.
All sorts of produce caught my eye and my wallet, from mushrooms and scallions to lettuce and spinach. There was no shortage of all kinds of meat, fish, and farm fresh eggs! All-season products like coffees and Traveling Teas, local honey, salsas and soaps from Hanley’s Fold (love them) were available as well. Black Bear Bakery had their wonderful breads and bakery items, and they had a new partner there called Red Fox Baking. I tried a ricotta galette (YUM) and one of their morning buns (muffin) is currently taunting me from my breadbox.
If you are missing the market, save the date for the next two St. Louis Community Farmer’s Markets (3/9 and 4/13), and before you know it, we’ll be back in the park on Saturday mornings!
