Fall Shreveport Farmer’s Market Opens Saturday – What Can We Expect?

The fall edition of the Shreveport Farmer’s Market opens for business Saturday morning…and this will be Noma Fowler-Sandlin’s last time as market manager. She’s seen our local market grow to become number one in Louisiana and number six in the country, for our market size. Who will be the next manager? She tells KEEL News that’s still up in the air.

She says the fall markets will feature a variety of greens, squash, pumpkins and fall tomatoes — among other things — along with meats and baked goods. And, as is usually the case, you can enjoy some tasty snacks and live music while you shop.

Because of the upcoming time change, the markets open a little later in the day than the summer ones. Fowler-Sandlin says that’s because it could be darker and cooler at 7 a.m. Hours are Saturdays from 8 a.m. until noon through November 17th.

This first Saturday market coincides with the Shreveport Zombie Walk, to benefit the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana. That’ll be set up at the other end of Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport. And we’re told some of the market vendors will be participating in that event, as well. The Zombie Walk kicks off at 2 Saturday afternoon.
