Chowing at Farmer's Markets (St. Louis)

The sun was shining (finally) and I was all dressed up with no place (in particular) to go. So I meandered over to the Kirkwood Farmer's Market. This being my first spring in St. Louis, the first thing I realized is that Missouri doesn't have much home grown produce this time of year. None-the-less, I made some wonderful discoveries. Asparagus, which I later wrapped in spicy coppa, grilled and placed on bruschetta with tallegio cheese and wilted ...WOOF!

But this isn't what I am talkin' about. I had a rockin' sandwich at a place called Babalu's Snack Shack. I got a gordita, which is a weird sort of Caribbean gyro with spicy grilled chicken in a haunting sweet and spicy sauce, loaded with veggies and such. Cheap and good. They were also selling the sauce, which I bought and plan to use on grilled wings, for which they provided.

Then, when I walked that off, I joined a serpentine line of anxious teenagers awaiting the seasonal opening of the local rage, Tropical Moose. If you haven't heard of it, you're in a coma.

Wake up St. Louisans' and get your keesters over there. There are promises of wonderful produce in June. But really, my question is, where are the best farmer's markets here and is there good eatin there?...I'm in search of good eats.
