Spring is almost here and it’s time to get out of our homes and shop for lots of fresh fruit and veg at Bossier City’s Farmers’ Market.
Going to the market on Saturday mornings has been pretty much my favorite thing to do during the pandemic. In fact, all those fresh fruits and veggies probably kept me from getting another “Quarantine 15”! Of course I wasn’t alone as many people ventured out in search of fresh produce as we were all forced to cook at home until things opened up a bit. I hope this is a healthy activity that I’ll stick with!
The Bossier City Farmers’ Market will be open for the 2023 season on Saturday, April 1 and every Saturday thereafter from 9am to 1pm through November. The weekly event takes place in the south parking lot of the Pierre Bossier Mall with over 75 local vendors, live music, food trucks, free parking, free entry and even pet friendly so I can bring my oversized lap dog. To see the constantly updated list of sellers, join the Bossier City Farmers Market Facebook page.
Some of my favorite stops are (obviously) the food stands, Gracie’s Geaux Meals, which sells pans of pre-cooked appetizers for easy and convenient meal prep, the stand that sells homemade dog treats, the stand that sells street tacos, and another that features the handmade wire jewelry crystals sold. Yes, I’m a hippie at heart!
