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.
