Resume its Thursday and the hours of the Saturday market this week, Red stick farmers market begins his return from vacation with fresh strawberries from Fletcher Farms, citrus fruits from the Barrois farm in the parish of Plaquemines and many other healthy products that respect the resolutions this Thursday in the back parking lot of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center.

Also at the Thursday market, it is a green vegetable festival in Frank Fekete Farm Stand. This week, the Hungarian colony’s farm will sell cabbage, mustard greens, kale, Swiss chard and collard greens, as well as turnips, carrots, celery, beets and green onions. Farmer Eric Morrow from Next day’s farm will bring fresh Louisiana sweet potatoes and shelled fresh red beans and purple peas.

Anna Marie Seafood, a Louisiana shrimp boatman, will have different sizes of frozen shrimp on the boat within minutes of catching, ensuring a great tasting, preservative-free product. The vendor also sells bycatch, including portions of red snapper and yellow grouper, red snapper half-shells, and mutton head fillets.

Also pick up all kinds of value-added goods at the Thursday market, including goat’s milk soap from Life on the farm, jellies, pickles and hibiscus tea Lena Farm, local honey from Bocage honey, Vietnamese pastries and coffee from Sugar mill confectionery, jams, pickles, Fletcher Farms dressing and hot sauce and stone-ground oatmeal, polenta, cornmeal, cornmeal, curly oatmeal and other items from Bonnecaze Farms.
