    Soulard has been a market since 1838, the buildings it is in now were built in 1900.


    It is in two train station sized halls.


    From what I gather it started as a market in a meadow near the river where boats could dock before the Louisiana Purchase.






    I went on a slow day, on the weekend it's so crowded you can't take pictures.
