During the pandemic, the STL Farmers Market Alliance’s collaborative events and community benefit programs have been postponed. In the meantime, please continue to support local farmers and entrepreneurs by patronizing the markets.
The STL Farmers Market Alliance celebrates the rich histories and community oriented missions of farmers markets in St Louis County. In the spirit of collaboration, the Kirkwood and U City Farmers Markets share a commitment to sustainable farmers’ market practices that promote the continued success of our region’s small family farms and artisan entrepreneurs.
