Here, you’ll meet the author of “Your Edible Yard” and farmer Crystal Stevens.

“We have about 10 acres, we do fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs with a focus on medicinal herbs. SO we grow our own tea blends. And then I do tinctures and herb salts,” said Crystal Stevens, Owner of Flourish Farmstead.

Stevens sells even more products made by her family.

“My daughter makes botanical face serums, and lip balms and perfumes and earrings. And my son does fan art, he’s really in love with the Marvel Multiverse,” she said.

Every time you buy something from a vendor, you get a ticket for a raffle to win a basket full of local treats.

“What many people may not realize, it’s been a part of the fabric of St. Louis all the way back to the 1870s, with the report of the first game in 1875,” Lange. “And we’ve been making history ever since, all the way up to today when the U.S.A plays the Netherlands with two players from St. Louis.”

The market is open until December 17.
