A trip to Soulard Market

On this gloomy Friday afternoon, Justin and I had plans to go hiking at Castlewood Park. Of course, the first time we make plans to do something outdoorsy in weeks gets quashed by mother nature.

So instead, we had an outing to Soulard Market.

For those of you who aren't from Saint Louis, Missouri — Soulard Market is one of the oldest open-air market still in existence in the USA. It's pretty big for a farmer's market, and is probably the only place in Saint Louis you'll find fresh rabbit.

Taking a trip to Soulard is always an adventure. For those of you who are from the area, be sure to check it out — you can save yourself buckets of money and support your local farmers.

Here's what we got for just $35:

2 chickens
1 rabbit
1 bunch celery
6 small onions
1 lb Yukon Gold potatoes
1 bunch white radishes
3 jumbo carrots
3 turnips
3 heads broccoli
2 sweet potatoes
1 carton strawberries
4 heads garlic

Justin is currently make gallons of stock with the veggies and chicken carcasses. 

Stay tuned for what we do with the rabbit!
