BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Red Stick Farmers Market organizers say the market will be returning to the Main Library at Goodwood this October.
Farmers took a break from the markets this summer as temperatures soared and produce supply decreased, according to the Big River Economic and Agricultural Development Alliance (BREADA). The farmers market is set to return starting Tuesday, Oct. 4 at the Main Library.
At this location, the farmers market will take place every Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the library’s public plaza.
“In the past, our weekday markets have not accommodated those who work during the day,” said BREADA’s Deputy Director Lisa Gray. “We want to freshen up this market and invite new people to not only shop, but also stay a while and enjoy the space and activities.”
People can shop for local fruits and vegetables, honey, seafood, meat, gelato, prepared foods, jams, jellies, and more at this farmers market.
BREADA said its farmers market accepts payment in the form of cash, credit/debit, SNAP benefits, or Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons.
