New Obsession: Tower Grove Farmers Market

I've always liked the idea of farmers markets. But getting someone to go with me, getting cash to pay and getting up that early on the weekend.... that's a different story.

Saturday, I actually dragged my butt up and made it down the street for the Tower Grove Farmers Market and it changed.my.life. I'll be getting up every Saturday possible from now one.

Reasons why it is awesome:
  • Lots of local food. Not just fruits and veggies. And nothing with stickers posing as the real thing. There were the typical fruits, veggies, spreads, jarred goodies but also chocolate, coffee, tea, even meat! 
  • Live music brought to you by KDHX
  • wading pools/fountains for kids (and adults?) to play in
  • a playground (with swings!)
  • lots of food to buy and eat on the spot, including, but not limited to tacos and crepes! Umm, breakfast and lunch plans? Check!

I go to the Edwardsville one every Saturday. I've been to the Maplewood one as well and it's fantastic. You can literally get almost all your groceries there (and I do!).

Too bad you girls don't live by me to come with me! I just hope I'm not the only awkward one going alone :)

Looking for something?
