Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

Soulard Market

The Soulard Market is the oldest farmer’s market west of the Mississippi, and it is a colorful place to buy and sell produce, meat, crafts, and even bunnies!  If you’ve never been, it is a great place to go and become immersed.  The environment is full of sights and smells, and the sounds of sellers hawking their goods (you are often conversing directly with the person or persons who created the items for sale).  This beats pushing the cart with the broken wheel around the supermarket any day!

All Nikon D50 with Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Lens attached.

    Soulard Farmer’s Market always seemed like a part of “the other” St. Louis to me, so much closer to what I knew from back home. Thanks for sharing these! Tobias
