Where's the Beets??? [STL]

sevendaysally | Apr 26, 2009 09:03 PM

I moved here form Colorado just about a year ago and really just starting to get my bearings. I love food and have been eating out a lot. However, I would like to explore the fresh markets in St. Louis and would like some feedback. I live in the Grove area but am willing to go anywhere (since no one in STL likes to travel beyond certain geographic areas).

I have seen Clayton (Lotsa vendors, no produce, no character. Soulard..well I know its near and dear to STL hearts, well its a dump. No food vendors, all the same stuff, little homegrown novelty stuff. Gee, more peaches.....

I went to Kirkwood last week and produce. I guess the reality is MO has no fresh produce now. I did find some plants for our new front yard. However, I did have breakfast at Babalu's Snack Shack. Great breakfast burrito and they were willing to make a special order. Get the #1 with crispy pulled pork and pickled onion, The "3 Little Pigs" sandwich was a study in pork and eggs. My boyfriend, not only couldn't put it down but didn't. He at it in 6 bites.. well maybe 8. I'll be back for lunch,

Where else can I find a good market with good grub?
