Seasonal Market Update

As the heat increases and the produce supply decreases, it is difficult for farmers to supply 4 weekly markets. Therefore, our Tuesday and Wednesday seasonal markets will be taking a summer break☀️. 

The last Tuesday Market of the season will be June 27th and the last Wednesday Market will be June 28th.

 Look for these markets again in the Fall!🍂

Saturday Market Parking

Reminder! There is free parking in the Galvez Parking Garage. The left lane of North St. is an active traffic lane and therefore parking is not allowed. You may be ticketed by the police.

Nutrition Corner

 Most dairy farms in Louisiana are located in the southeast part of the state! Dairy products contain protein, calcium, potassium, and vitamin D. Consuming milk can help build and maintain bone health. Yogurt and cheeses are lower in lactose due to fermentation, and they contain gut bacteria that can benefit digestion. Be sure to choose low-fat and fat-free dairy products, as they can help reduce risk of heart disease and high blood pressure.
