BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Red Stick Farmers Market will be hosting a local food tasting to celebrate the Fourth of July.

The Big River Economic and Agricultural Development Alliance (BREADA) named the event Farm to Fourth, which will include meat, seafood, vegetables, fruit, jambalaya, and live music to create a family oriented environment.

Farm to Fourth is part of BREADA’s Fresh Fest, highlighting different agricultural crops weekly through the months of June and July to promote Louisiana’s harvest and to urge the community to buy fresh products from local farmers.

Farm to Fourth will take place at the regularly scheduled Thursday market beginning at 8 a.m. to noon on June 30 at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center, 6400 Perkins Road.
