A REAL "Farmers Market" in St. Louis!

You may not know
Sappington Farmers Market
is the first "farmer owned" grocery store in St. Louis.

In 2008, a group of farmers and growers who call themselves FARM TO FAMILY took over the Sappington Market (8400 Watson Road), which makes it a REAL farmers market. This Missouri cooperative effort is attracting a lot of interest and attention as they stock locally sourced and organic produce and groceries, including ethnic foods, local brands and a full line of "gluten free" bakery products.

While we're all waiting for our favorite outdoor markets to open, Sappington Farmers Market is an indoor option, well worth a visit. Lots to discover here, including a variety of "seed" potatoes and onion sets, ready for planting.
