The Sappington Farmer's Market has closed, and Farmers Fred and Clyde are no more.[Nikki, 09/21/2012]
The Market closed in late August 2012. Farmer Fred and Clyde are currently in a warehouse, but once a new, nearby location is found they're promised to return.
Farmer Fred and Clyde, spotted on a drive from St. Louis, Missouri to Charlotte, North Carolina. In good shape![Kim V, 11/29/2010]
We made a point to see this attraction after reading about Farmer Fred and Clyde on RoadsideAmerica.com. It was fun just to get our pictures taken with them.[Marcella, 11/20/2009]
After a St. Louis pilgrimage to Ted Drewes, I just kept driving on down Rt. 66. On the Watson Road section I was surprised to come across two large, friendly gents I quickly learned are Farmer Fred and his son Clyde. They are in front of Sappington's International Farmer's Market.[Rhonda Reddick, 05/08/2007]
On Watson road between Laclede Station and Elm, in south St. Louis County, are a pair of large fiberglass farmer statues glinting evily from the Sappington Farmer's Market. No one seems to know where they came from, but they replaced the world's scariest gigantic fiberglass clown statue that was there forever, until someone had the good sense to set him on fire. (Not kidding -- there was actually a controversy in the neighborhood because the residents were creeped out by a giant maneating clown staring into their windows at night.) So now we have the farmers: equally creepy, equally mysterious.[beqi, 04/29/2003]
It's a father and son in overalls and plaid shirts, waving from along the edge of the road. Not Muffler Men.
