Saturday (Aug. 3):
Saturday market @ North City Farmers' Market
"The North City Farmers' Market is, without a doubt, the little engine that could, operated by the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group, whose overarching goal is to bring vivacity and excitement (and fresh veggies!) to a neighborhood looking to make a comeback. We're guessing most St. Louisans have yet to visit Old North (unless making a stop at Crown Candy), so let us entice into making a trip in the near future." 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Riverpalooza 2013 @ Yacht Club of St. Louis
"Celebrate the boating lifestyle with live music, great food & drink specials from Sundowners Restaurant and a river raft up contest. No boat necessary to participate -- come out for the fun." Free. 2 to 8 p.m.
