About the Market

The Webster Groves Farmers Market is not the first St. Louis market, but we aim to be the most unique. What makes this market so special is our location, our selection and our community support. The Market was created in 2010 through a collaborative effort from city leaders, area businesses and local organizations. Never before has a farmers market been so thoroughly embraced by its community.

The Webster Groves Farmers Market is a weekly non-profit market featuring local farmers, food producers and artisans from Missouri and Illinois.  Our mission is to promote healthy eating and sustainability by providing locally grown and produced goods and by sponsoring food-related education in a unique and
 lively park setting that integrates the local business base in its efforts to make the Webster Groves community a leading place to live and shop.

The Webster Groves Farmers Market is supported by an all-volunteer Board of Directors and funded by fund-raising initiatives, sponsorships and vendor fees. The market works on a small budget that must support a variety of operating expenses that include tents and tables for vendors, site improvements, marketing, promotions, and a market manager.

About Farmers Markets

The idea is simple… Buy food produced, grown or raised as close to home as possible. By doing this you get amazing taste and freshness, you help support local economy, protect the environment and encourage the growth of our local farmers. Most of the time, the produce you get at a farmers market has been picked within 24 hours and many are pesticide, hormone and chemical free. You know where your food is coming from because the grower is right there selling their product!
