The Bossier City Farmers Market has been selected as the #1 Farmer’s Market in the entire state of Louisiana in the 15th annual America’s Farmers Market Celebration™, presented by American Farmland Trust and Farmers Market Coalition.
Additionally, the Bossier City Farmers Market placed 13th in the United States.
“On behalf of the Bossier City Farmers Market, I would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who helped us by voting in this year’s national contest. The contest began in July but we didn’t find out about it until just a few weeks ago. We are super excited and grateful to have been voted No. 1 in Louisiana and No. 13 nationwide,” Chris Graham, Bossier City Farmers Market organizer, said.
More than 2,000 markets nationwide participated in the 2023 celebration with over 10 million supporters engaged through voting, visiting the celebration website and engaging with the celebration on social media.
“The contest is a great way to highlight the important role farmers markets play in local communities and our nation. Participating in the Celebration is a way for people to come together and support their communities, local food producers, and vendors. No Farms, No Food,” Graham added.
The Bossier City Farmers Market is open every Saturday through November from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the south parking lot of Pierre Bossier Mall. It features 65-plus farmers, vendors, and food trucks with free admission and parking.
