Tower Grove Farmers' Market: Scenes from Opening Day

It was a damp and chilly opening day for the eighth season of the Tower Grove Farmers' Market (Main Drive & Center Cross Drive, west of the wading pool; 314-771-4410 ), but that didn't stop St. Louisans from showing up to enjoy food, music and the variety of crafts from local artisans.

Chilly weather and overcast skies didn't scare away the multitudes who flocked to the Tower Grove Farmers' Market for opening day.

Since its opening opening day in 2006, the Tower Grove market has burgeoned in size and range, attracting thousands of visitors each week and featuring vendors who offer fruits and vegetables galore, not to mention specialty items such as hand-spun angora yarn and organically cultivated mushrooms.
