The Natchitoches Farmers’ Market, a much loved feature of life in our area since 1999, held its first market since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic Saturday, May 16 at the Downtown Riverbank. Ten vendors sold homegrown fruits, vegetables and homemade arts and crafts to a steady stream of visitors.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal was delighted to see Ms. Avery Austin of Dallas and Ms. Melissa and Megan Estopinal of Slidell who dropped by the Farmers’ Market while visiting their grandparents in Natchitoches.
The market will be open from 8:00 to 1:00 each Saturday on the Riverbank. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, masks must be worn in the market area. As our state opens back up for business, get out of the house, come by the market and help support our local farmers and artisans!
