ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- The dramatically changing weather seems to be the one constant in St. Louis.  At the Kirkwood Farmers Market workers were bundling up against the cold.  Karen Mary Becker works for Summit Produce, “Today I actually did wear my long underwear.”

The market actually opened earlier this season because of all the warm days.  Since then they’ve been hit by some rainy skies which can hurt sales.  Dan Mitchell with Summit Produce said, “The past three days have been awesome, had a lot of people here, a little bit of cool weather and rain will slow that down for us.”

A few miles away at Sugar Creek Garden customers were not going to let some uncomfortable weather stop them from tending to their gardens.  Ben Goldstein enjoys working in the yard.  Goldstein said, “Just love it, I just like gardening. I like the colors and the flowers, putting them in the ground watching them grow...right now matter what kind of weather.  I’ll go out and work in the yard in February.”

Some golfers are just as devoted as gardeners.  Rick Haberstroh was hitting some practice shots in Forest Park.  Haberstroh said, “Yesterday was a perfect day for golf but I had to work. Madden: So you’re out here today.  Haberstroh: It’s my only day of practice. I got soccer games this weekend.”
