There isn't a large hispanic presence in the STL metro, but there are little pockets where there is a significant presence of Hispanics. The only majority cities of Hispanics live in the Metro East and more specifically St. Clair county, and cities like Fairmount City and Cahokia are areas where you can find stores that cater to Hispanic people. I'm not too familiar with St. Louis, St. Charles and Jefferson County, but in St. Louis City the most prevelant area of Hispanics is around Cherokee Street where there are tons of stores that cater to the Hispanic population.

I know we have a decent Hispanic population here in St. Ann. The Catholic church around here actually does Masses in both English and Spanish depending on the time of day, and Easter Vigil is done in both with readings switching between English and Spanish as the Mass progresses...It's pretty cool.

The Hispanic proportion of St. Louis City's population is said to be 3.5%, which would mean that about 11,200 residents are Latinos. The largest single concentration is around the Cherokee Street Business District.

Some suburbs also have concentrations of Latino residents. Fairmont City, Illinois is 55% Hispanic, but has a total population of only about 2600.

BTW, There's a large supermercado on St. Charles Rock Road in Bridgeton.

Small but growing. And Benton Park West (the area stlcitygirl mentioned) is definitely a spot where they're congregating in the city.

As others have mentioned, the areas around St. Ann and Overland in St. Louis county are the most Hispanic on the suburban MO side (roughly 10% in local areas). Fairmount City on the IL side is the most Hispanic on the IL suburban side (a very concentrated area actually over 50% Hispanic). In STL City, it's the Cherokee street corridor stretching along the boundary of Benton Park West/Gravois Park/Tower Grove East/Tower Grove South. Commercially, your best bet is the corner of California and Cherokee in the city. One larger grocer+1 smaller+a couple of the most authentic Mexican restaurants in the city.

As others have mentioned, metro STL does not have a very large hispanic population. For reference, the Hispanic pop % by metro from the 2010 census for the 10 largest midwest metros:

Chicago 20.7%
Milwaukee 9.5%
Kansas City 8.2%
Indianapolis 6.2%
Minneapolis 5.4%
Cleveland 4.7%
Detroit 3.9%
Columbus 3.6%
Cincinnati 2.6%
St. Louis 2.6%

There are large pockets in Chicago, Milwaukee, KC, and Detroit that are majority Hispanic near the city. There are also large portions of Indy, Cleveland, and the Twin Cities that are "heavily" Hispanic (25-50%). For whatever reason, STL, Columbus, and Cincinnati don't have areas with similar concentrations. A block or two on either side of certain parts of Cherokee, that seems to be the case, but not consistently over an entire neighborhood.

Update: C-D states that the Hispanic population of Fairmont City is now 71.4% of that city's total. Which means that Fairmont has arguably the highest concentration of Hispanic people in the St. Louis region.

Actually according to the 2010 US Census, the percentage of the hispanic population in Chicago was 28.9%, with Milwaukee at 15.7%. Likewise the hispanic percentage in Minneapolis was 10.5%.

Probably a little shorter than anglos, but they tend to keep their weight under control.
