ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – A bus is helping to break barriers by delivering much needed staples to poor communities in St. Louis that are dealing with health and hunger issues.

The St. Louis Metro Market Bus is a non-profit mobile farmers market. It stops in the Jeff Vanderlou neighborhood at the corner of Martin Luther King and Compton every Saturday morning from 9 a.m. until noon.

Starting June 1, it will also stop at Holy Trinity Catholic Church from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. the first Saturday of each month.
