While spending time in St. Louis over the Easter weekend, I visited the historic Soulard Farmer's Market just south of downtown. There's been a continuous market at this location since 1779, one of the oldest in the United States. It has an indoor main hall with 4 open air wings filled with produce, meats, live animals, spices and various crafts. The best way to browse the market is to drop by Julia's Market Cafe and pick up her Bloody Mary, voted the Best Bloody Mary in the 2012 River Front Times poll. If you don't like a spicy, ask the happy drink mixers to hold the spicy sprinkle finisher.
