The St. Louis Earth Day Festival celebrates sustainable products and services available in the St. Louis area -- including food. It's apparently the second-largest Earth Day celebration in the country. The festival covers a huge area of Forest Park (specifically, the Muny grounds), and it can be a little confusing. As always, we're here to help you navigate the culinary waters. Check out our can't-miss food picks.
