We are excited to announce a new partnership with the East Baton Rouge Parish Library to move the Tuesday Market to the Main Library at 7711 Goodwood Blvd. The Market will open September 29th with a special kickoff event featuring a cooking demo by chef Celeste, recipe cards, and a free shopping tote while supplies last. The Farmers Market will be open from 8 am to noon, weather permitting, each Tuesday for the fall season.
Colorful heirloom pumpkins signal the start of fall and you'll find all shapes and sizes at the Market this Saturday along with fall greens, corn, and squash. Alice Womble with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana will join chef Celeste in the kitchen to showcase fall's bounty in healthy recipes. Join them at 10 am inside Main Street Market and sample their seasonal dish. You'll also pick up great tips for storing and preparing seasonal produce found at the Farmers Market.
