Each year we start our miniature city food garden with the caring help of local growers like Mitchell's Farms at St. Louis' World famous Soulard Market, founded in 1795. Mitchell's Farms, based in Southwest Missouri near the Arkansas border, offers the best of organic herb starts, bountiful flowers, assorted succulents and the finest of Midwestern know-how and hospitality. This family-run business with reps from several of its generations can be found at booths #33-34 in the Northeast Wing of Soulard Market. Be sure to ask for growing tips, because they're full of farmer wisdom!
And bustling Soulard Market definitely has had its own appeal for more than two centuries. Think of it: built just after the Revolutionary War in St. Louis, Missouri!
