Do You Know Your St. Louis History?
Soulard Market is 239 years old and is the oldest farmer’s market west of the Mississippi. For many years, the market was held in a meadow where farmers could sell their bounty. In 1841, Julia Cerre Soulard inherited 122 acres of land south of downtown and donated 2 city blocks to erect a building on the site to house the farmer’s market. Today, Soulard Market is a top attraction in St. Louis, offering fruit, vegetables, meats, spices, fresh flowers and specialty items at very affordable prices.
Celebrating our 65th year, UCP Heartland would like to honor a landmark that has been so endearing to the history of our great city with this beautiful
Soulard Market ornament.
