The Shreveport Farmers Market drew quite a crowd to festival plaza for opening day.Vendors from all over the Arklatex pulled into the complex early Saturday to get ready to bring fresh fruits, veggies and much more to local shoppers.

I found what I was looking for: blueberries, blackberries and strawberries. I also picked up a few fresh plants: camomile, lavender, basil, oregano and parsley. Let's see if I can keep them growing.
