Red Stick Farmers Market

501 Main Street
225-267-5060

History:

From the beginning BREADA emphasized building a sense of community among farmers and consumers. The value of Louisiana's rich culture steeped in food and farming motivated support from urban neighbors to eat locally and in season.

The importance of connecting the urban customer with the local farmer led to the formation of the Red Stick Farmers Market in November of 1996. The Farmers Market created a link between locally owned family farms and food businesses in the Baton Rouge area. From the very first Market day, Red Stick Farmers Market became a favorite Saturday morning tradition where shoppers could build relationships with food producers.

The success of the Red Stick Farmers Market, a producer-only market, creates a direct sales marketplace and provides a sustainable livelihood for small Louisiana agribusinesses. In return Red Stick Farmers contribute to the cultural and economic well being of surrounding rural areas.  

With a growing demand for local foods, BREADA added two new locations and operates Mid Week Markets on both Tuesday and Thursdays in outlying areas of Baton Rouge. With additional access to local foods, farmers put a face on the food that they grow, earn a fair return for their produce and receive feedback from consumers. The markets are cause to celebrate local Louisiana food traditions.

Great weekly farmer's market. Good array of vendors outside when the weather has been kind. Excellent food inside along with an array of artists and a few specialty shops.

Great local farmers market open Saturdays and every first Saturday of the month is an arts market. Parking is free in the parking garage adjacent to the street. I really enjoy getting sausage inside from Cutrer's and they also have really good roasts for sale. I'd recommend getting email updates from BREADA if you're interested in seeing what's fresh each month at the market
