Cherokee Street is a vibrant corridor for commerce and creativity in South St. Louis- bringing together art, social enterprise and entrepreneurship all within a historical commercial district, surrounded by four distinct neighborhoods. Home to an independent arts community, where a collective spirit prevails- of inclusiveness, collaboration, diversity and enthusiasm – fueled by a by-the-bootstraps DIY ethos – Cherokee Street is driven by the people, living, working and playing in the area.   Named St. Louis’ Mexican-food mecca, Cherokee Street has the largest concentration of Latino owned and operated bakeries, restaurants, shops and grocers in St. Louis.  Walk along the city’s famous Cherokee antique row, a unique shopping and historical district where dozens of merchants sell items from the areas’ historic past in treasure-filled stores.
