Once a month after the Schlafly Farmers Market, Slow Food St. Louis and the market host a discussion about our local food system in the Crown Room at Schlafly Bottleworks. On Wednesday, August 14, we will be featuring several market vendors to talk about farmers markets as business incubators for food entrepreneurs. Learn how iScream Cakes, the ReTrailer and Whisk Bakeshop started or grew their businesses at Schlafly Farmers Market and other local markets. There will also be a representative from our local Slow Money organization, Gateway Harvest, to talk about how they are investing in St. Louis’ sustainable food system and local economy.
Event starts at 7:45pm and there will be a question and answer session after the presentations. Event in the Crown Room.
