Red River Revel is proud to announce that The Shreveport Farmers’ Market opens Saturday, May 30th for its 34th summer season. The Shreveport Farmers’ Market serves local farmers and our community by providing bountiful and fun-filled weekly markets! The market will be open every Saturday through August 29, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The East Pavilion features vegetables, fruits, herbs, plants, honey, and meats grown/raised within a 100-mile radius of Shreveport. Ranchers sell ethically-raised beef, pork, chicken, and lamb. Great breads, jams, jellies, pickles, various canned goods, locally-made soaps, dog treats, seasonings, and sauces are also available. And chocolates, cookies, cakes, candies, and pralines will make any sweet tooth happy!
We have a new layout that will feature a Food Row where you’ll find hot, ready-to-eat foods ranging from chicken and waffles to shrimp and grits. Every Saturday, enjoy live entertainment from a variety of local performers.
Free parking is available at meters and certain downtown lots. There are public restrooms under the Spring Street Bridge and plenty of seating and shade. There is an ATM onsite, and some vendors accept credit/debit cards. The market also accepts SNAP transactions to spend with participating vendors, and some farmers accept Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Food Coupons available through parish Councils on Aging and WIC.
This summer, kickoff every weekend with this incredibly social, family-friendly, fun community event.
