Soulard Market

We've just returned home from a couple of days in St. Louis with Jo and John.  Every year about this time, John and Alan need some time off of the farms, away from the combines, without their cell phones.  These weekends are always encouraged by Jo and Becky.  

This year we decided to really visit St. Louis.  The St. Louis that the locals know.  More precisely, the restaurants of St. Louis.   We did find a quilt shop here and a home decorating store there, in-between restaurants.  We stayed at a B&B in historical Soulard and spent Saturday morning at their Farmers' Market.  Well...we had to do something between breakfast and lunch.

 Oh, Alan!
 These are those big school-cafeteria sized cans...How old are these and who needs that much apple jelly?
 We bought LOTS at this booth!
Dried flavored pasta...I love the gorgeous colors!
We bought 2 types...garlic-basil AND cracked pepper.  Certainly plan to try them later this week.
 There is a very tall man standing behind that pile of grapes.

 Couldn't help but laugh at the placement of the Pet Shop sign in relation to the others.

 Yes, you could buy a live turkey!

No turkey... Just a few bags of fresh produce, spices, seeds, and warm baked breads made the trip home with us.


  1. Beautiful photos! I probably would have brought home my weight in those different pastas! Yummy :)

  2. I love this post! Don't you just love fall?
