“I have been a citrus farmer since 1996, and I will tell you, selling at the Red Stick Farmers Market has kept us in business. The assistance we received from BREADA after we lost our home in Hurricane Isaac has helped us start over and return to the market.”

Thelma Bennett,
Red Stick Farmers Market Patron

“We love the Red Stick Sprouts program because it teaches kids how to eat healthy. I want them to ask for fresh fruits and vegetables at home.”

“Without (the) Red Stick Farmers Market, starting a farming operation would have been next to impossible. The Market gives us access to informed customers dedicated to supporting local agriculture.”
