Swap Meet Sundays at the Lemp Brewery
St. Louis beer might be associated with Anheuser-Busch, but Lemp was at one time one of the biggest beer brands in the country. At the height of their popularity, they opened a giant brewery at the end of St. Louis's Cherokee Street in 1840, complete with caves for keeping their lager cold. They closed the plant before Prohibition, and the complex has changed hands a few times; for a while it's been partly abandoned, part Halloween Haunted House, and part art studios. Now there's new life brewing on the grounds each Sunday with the St. Louis Swap Meet, launched in the summer of 2015 and adding more vendors each week. Look for food trucks and art trucks; vintage, salvaged, upcycled, and repurposed objects; modern design; and old-fashioned deals. The swap meet happens every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and afterward you can continue shopping along Cherokee Street's Antiques Row, or maybe grab a beer.
