2014-2015 Winter Market
Keep Eating Local Foods All Winter!
Our last outdoor market date is November 22, the Saturday before Thanksgiving. After that, we will move indoors for our monthly Winter Market.
The Winter Market is held in the gymnasium at City Garden Montessori School, located at 1618 Tower Grove Avenue, St Louis, 63110.
The Winter Market runs from 9am-1pm and the dates are:
Saturday, December 13
Saturday, January 10
Saturday, February 14
Saturday, March 14
We will return to the park location in April!
Thank you very much to City Garden Montessori School for the use of their spacious gymnasium!
Saturday, October 18
Time for Farmer Jason!
Our most popular musical performer of the season, Farmer Jason, will be back at the market this Saturday from 10am-12noon. Bring the kids for a fun and entertaining show!
Don't Forget the Extended Market this Year!
When the cooler weather comes, we start getting questions about when the last market is. Just like last season, we have extended the market to run through the Saturday before Thanksgiving (November 22). You still have over two months to enjoy the market and we hope you will come out and enjoy the amazing produce that is available in the fall!

2014 Fundraising Campaign – Become a Friend of the Farmers’ Market today!
You can help us reach our goal!
The end of the season is now just nine weeks away and we still have $12,500 to raise to reach our fundraising goal of $18,000 for the year. If you enjoy the market, please consider a donation to support these benefits to the St Louis community:
This year, 130,000 shoppers will come to the market and buy healthy and sustainably produced food. They will connect with their neighbors, their farmers, and bring their children to enjoy the park and learn about where their food comes from.
Farmers and food entrepreneurs will make close to $1,500,000 in sales at the market and much more through the business connections they make at the market.
We help launch successful St Louis businesses, including Salume Beddu, Traveling Tea, Whisk Bakeshop, Southwest Diner, Kakao Chocolate, Four Season’s Baked Goods, and One World Ice Cream (new this season). Through increased sales at our market, we have made it possible for many of our vendors to do what they love full time.
We bring in dozens of non-profit organizations each season that disseminate information and help our shoppers live greener lives, adopt abandoned pets, and increase awareness of important issues.
We help grow neighborhoods. New Tower Grove residents include the farmers’ market in their decision to move to the neighborhood and area business owners cite the market as a key reason they open in the area.
Up to 300 students attend our free yoga class each week and we bring in great music each week with the help of KDHX.
Click here to donate now.
What do we use the money for?
Our main expenses are rent, staffing, and supplies (printing, tents, tables, computer hardware, etc…).
Our $18,000 goal represents about 33% of our total annual budget, the remainder of the budget is made up of vendor fees.
What else can you do besides donating?
Purchasing merchandise (t-shirts, tote bags, hats, mugs) helps us meet our budget. Stop by our booth on Saturdays to see what we have.
