Our Saturday morning Market, is where farmers gather, friends meet and the Fresh Food Festival begins. Tucked along the Delmar Loop in University City, we’re reviving the fresh-from-the-farm tradition at the Historic Market in the Loop.
Look for our weekly Market Music Series and Children’s Activities. Topics of public interest, such as seasonal food preparation, wellness education and community information are seasonal highlights. Special Events include Zucchini Car Races, Children’s Cooking Tour and more. See the Events Calendar.
Missouri and Illinois farm products including fresh fruits & veggies, cheeses, grass-fed beef, free-range eggs, Missouri rainbow trout, poultry and pork products, and honey; baked goods & treats; jams and jellies, nuts, coffee, chocolates, and other specialty artisan foods; soaps & body care; and fine arts & crafts for hearth and home.
It’s back! The Mushroom Festival is returning to Pere Marquette Lodge and will be bigger than ever before. Come listen to live music, browse venders, grab lunch in the restaurant, taste local wines and learn all there is to know about mushrooms. The Great Morel Hunt will be held at 1 p.m. (weather and morel permitting). Join fellow hunters from all over the area as they scan the ground for these delicious delicacies. Then bring your finds back to The Lodge and you can win a great prize! Find the smallest morel, the largest morel or the most morels and you just might go home with a free night’s stay.
