TowerGroveTowerGroveTowerGrove....by far my favorite. They totally make getting up early on a Saturday worth it. Can't wait until it opens, a week from Saturday. Considering the same people are starting one downtown, that will be worth checking out too. The Maplewood one is really good too, and it's right next to Schlafly, which is always a plus. Soulard is the original St. Louis farmers market, and is usually very good too. Haven't tried the others, but I will have to give them a try this year.
