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.

I had not shopped here for quite some time and found the changes since my last visit exciting. In addition to offerings from the various farms outside, the availability of Our Daily Bread and other shops inside, was a bonus. An assortment of hot foods, jewelry, coffee, kitchen accessories, men's and women's lavatories, and so on, makes this an excellent Saturday morning location to shop, eat, interact with people, as well as enjoy live music. I will visit more often as a result of this excellent, entertaining experience.

Excellent Saturday morning activity in downtown Baton Rouge. There are plenty of breakfast options indoors(if you skip GoYaya's breakfast crepes, I feel bad for you son)and plenty of delicious, local farmer's fare outdoors. There are usually local musicians and an art market on the first weekend of the month. Fun for everyone of all ages!

Nice and fresh vegetables. Some items we buy at price lower than super market. I mainly go there for milk for last 13 years. Tasty.

Wonderful place to get local fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy and more! It's so nice to meet the farmers that grew their produce rather than getting it off a shelf in a grocery store. There are also art markets the first of the month that feature local artists' work that doesn't dissapoint. Great place to bring the kiddos and let them understand where their food comes from, and maybe even leave with a sunflower the size of THEM!! I would recommend Red Stick Farmers Market highly.
