1385 Highway 19

Loutre Market is located 1 mile from the Katy Trail, in McKittrick MO

Directions: Next to the gas station, visible across the fields from trailhead.
Either climb the hill on the east side of the trail tunnel under hwy 19 and ride down the shoulder to the store (the easiest way if the hill is not too overgrown or you're not afraid of chiggers) or you can turn south on the gravel road just east of the trail head to hwy 94, then west to hwy 19, then north to store (sounds complicated, but total distance is probably less than 1 mile). -thanks to savage24 from KC for directi

Good resupply stop. Opens at 7:30am. Surprisingly good beer selection. First time I've seen shelves of ammo by the checkout line.

Big grocery store, deli with hot food, tables to sit and eat. Beer. Best resupply stop.

This is a full size grocery store and only about 1/4 mile from the trail. An exit off the trail on the west side of the underpass is in process of being completed. When we were there the ramp exit was dirt and usable. From this store getting into Herman is pretty easy and only about 1.5 miles. The road has a wide shoulder that continues across the new bridge into Herman.

I stopped by the Loutre Market to pick up dinner on my way to camping at Hermann City Park, and I was pleasantly surprised -- the market was a full-sized grocery store and was clean & well-stocked. The deli had a big variety of both hot & cold foods. They had some pre-made hoagie sandwiches, but the counter gal told me they could make a hoagie from any of the lunch meats & cheeses they had in their display case. I got a pre-made ham & cheese and some macaroni salad, along with some snacks from the grocery aisles. Everything was delicious & fresh. Friendly help there, too. Highly recommended.

Ate there last Thursday. Food was good, service was better...let me sub in veggies for fried stuff on daily special. Picked up groceries for rest of day. Worth the stop. Go south on the Hermann spur trail just to west of bridge. $1 Gatorade the day I was there!!

McKittrick = Joey's Birdhouse!!!! Favorite stop on the Katy!

If you want groceries stop here (Mokane Market)

For a long stretch going east there are not many places to get groceries. This is a nice place to stop and get some. We stopped here and got a bottle of wine to go with our sandwiches we got carry-out at the Trailside Bar and Grill in Rhineland.

The Mokane Market is a nice store, and very clean when I've been there. Another option is the Loutre Market in McKittrick. You can see it from the McKittrick trail head. You can either climb the hill on the east side of the trail tunnel under hwy 19 and ride down the shoulder to the store (the easiest way if the hill is not too overgrown or you're not afraid of chiggers) or you can turn south on the gravel road just east of the trail head to hwy 94, then west to hwy 19, then north to store (sounds complicated, but total distance is probably less than 1 mile). The Loutre Market is a "full service country grocery store"; they have everything a cyclist on the Katy could want except a bike shop. I have no connection to the Loutre Market accept being an occasional customer for the last 30 years as I have family in the area (the current building is only a couple years old, the first 2 were destroyed by fire).

I rode the trail in April from Clinton to Hermann. Stopped and spent the third night at the shelter in Tebbets. Rode to Mokane the next morning and stopped at the Mokane Market and got a sausage biscuit and coffee for breakfast. They were very nice and heated the sandwich in a microwave for me. I sat around a table with about 15 elderly retired farmers and shot the breeze with them about fishing and farming. Everyone was extremely nice and accomodating.

The Loutre Market is an oasis along this section of trail. Over the Labor Day weekend, I rode from Clinton to Dutzow and this store was outstanding. Great hot and cold deli w/ in store tables to eat at or picnic tables outside in shade. Buy something and they'll let you get free ice and water from the soda fountain for your bottls. Very close to the trail; perhaps a block from the trail head. Very friendly employees too.
