ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– For the first time the Lafayette Square and Soulard neighborhoods have a full service grocery store.

This might be the first time that suburbanites will want to head into the city to buy their milk, eggs and bread.

They’ll not only be experiencing a one of kind grocery store, but also supporting dozens of local farmers.

From the minute you step into Fields Foods, you know it’s not your average grocery store.

From the colorful wallscapes to the food stations and yes, even a wine bar, city dwellers are getting a full service culinary shopping adventure.

The grocery store has also partnered with farmers within 100 miles or less to offer local produce and other locally-sourced products.

The 3700 square feet building sits on what used to be an overgrown, vacant lot across the street from the reincarnated city hospital, now the Georgian condominiums.

It’s not just bringing redevelopment to the city but also more than 100 jobs.

And how is this for making shopping easy, you can come in, order a glass of wine, give your shopping list to a store employee and let them do the shopping for you.

If you find pleasure in shopping the old fashioned way, you can enjoy a glass of wine while you browse the isles with carts that have a built in cup holder.

Fields Foods is open for business from 7 am to 10 pm, seven days a week.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
