Taste Of North St. Louis Is Coming To Square Plaza
This Saturday is the Taste of North St. Louis. A festival of food vendors and artisans, music, dance, and more.
Crown Square Plaza offers a variety of food and drink options, including samples from many restaurants, food trucks, caterers, and bakers. (Admission is complimentary, but food and drink will be charged. The idea is to invite people to the area to enjoy its culture and vibe. Food serves as a universal invitation.
This is the latest offering by the Saint Louis African American Artifacts Festival & Bazaar. They are the nonprofit behind last month’s Juneteenth Free Dome Celebration, and the upcoming Saint Louis African American Artifacts Festival, Unity Festival, and Market.
The eight-year-old organization was founded by Robert Green, a historian, collector, curator, and impresario. The mission of all festivals is to share history and culture. “Taste of North St. Louis” is a way to share what’s special and beautiful in the area, Green says. Come over to see our culture, our shops, and our businesses.
ChezAlistl offers Afro Caribbean cuisine. Pretty Pop Gourmet Popcorn has sweet and savory options. There will be about 30 food vendors. They have a variety of flavors and come from all over the region, not just North St. Louis. Green says that while Crown Candy is an important part of the community, the food vendors come from all over the region. He also says that visitors can expect a variety of flavors. You will have a truly unique experience of culture when you visit North St. Louis.
