The Ferguson Farmers Market will be open every Saturday from May – October from 8:00am-12:00pm. This year, the market will be managed and operated by the City of Ferguson and the Ferguson Parks & Recreation Department.

“We’re excited to bring the management of the Ferguson Farmers’ Market back in-house.” said David Musgrave, Director of Parks & Recreation. “The market is more than just about bringing healthy, fresh produce to the community. It’s a Saturday morning tradition where the community can grab a coffee, chat with neighbors, make new connections, let their kids participate in fun activities, and enjoy a family-friendly, festive atmosphere.”

The Ferguson Parks & Recreation Department plans to put increased resources into the market to continue its growth and expand the market to a larger and more diverse community. “Our hope is to bring more people from all around St. Louis to check out our vibrant market; not only to increase the sales of our incredible farmers and artisans, but to give more people the opportunity to see and experience downtown Ferguson and all that the community has to offer.” said Joseph Seastrom, Superintendent of Parks & Recreation.
