Farmers Market

Every Saturday morning local farmers gather in downtown Baton Rouge to sell produce. The market is called Red Stick Farmers Market (Baton Rouge means Red Stick in French). The market opens at 8AM but the farmers get there very early to set up.

Everyone seemed to have strawberries for sale!

This family of pecan farmers was handing out free samples. They were really good!

Our main reason for going to the farmers market was to buy local honey. Dave loves honey and its also very healthly!

There were also vendors selling art work, food, and soap. Check out this King Cake Soap! It smelled just like King Cake too!

They also had flowers for sale, but I didn't get any.

    God bless you :-)


  3. Hi Mary1
    Oh my...what a nice post. My wife would go crazy over those strawberries and I would go crazy over all those other things.

    I have a post coming up about our own Farmer's Market, but that will be posted on my Houston blog next week. It's a Farmers Market, but it looks REALLY different from the one you have.
    Happy Spring!
