There are numerous farmers markets around the state of Louisiana. Shop locally and support your local farmers and fisherman.
Farmers Markets are often the perfect place to purchase heirloom fruits and vegetables. When supermarkets became the common place to purchase produce the fruits and veggies passed down from generation to generation lost favor to the easier to pick and ship hybrids. Now, heirlooms are back in style. They generally taste a lot better than their mass-market cousins. Some markets e.g. Rouses carry heirloom tomatoes but for more exotic heirlooms try your local farmers market.
