A big part of clean eating and healthy living is knowing where to find nourishing food. Shopping locally and purchasing from farmers in your area is a great way to support local business and also a way to ensure you know exactly where your food is coming from. This weekend, consider checking out your local farmers market. We’ve compiled a list of three great markets to get you started.

1/ Tower Grove Farmers Market 
Every Saturday morning the Tower Grove Farmers Market takes over the park with healthy food, live music, yoga classes, kid-friendly activities and food trucks. If you need to pick up some wholesome groceries but are also looking for a fun Saturday morning, get out of the house and take a stroll through Tower Grove Park. It doesn’t hurt that part of their mission is to provide a space for non-profits to spread their word. That’s something we can get behind.

2/ Soulard Farmers Market 
Soulard Farmers Market has been a favorite spot for veggie-loving weekenders for over 100 years. But here, you’ll also find much more than vegetables. Purchase flowers by the dozen, a variety of meats, dry goods and more.

Nestled in downtown Kirkwood, across from OK Hatchery, Kirkwood Farmers Market thrives in the busy business district, home to over 300 local businesses. Open 7 days a week, you can find produce during the summer, pumpkins in the fall and holiday events during the early winter months.
