I would like to see more local columns like this one. Shreveport Times sux big time all they can talk about it national news. Allen you are getting better all the time. I love the farmers market I go all the time and I have purchased Hummer Honey at the market. I have a garden but I can not grow everything and the farmers market is a good place to fill in with real home grown stuff. Many local vegetable stands sell CA goods and call them home grown but the farmers market is the real deal

Nice article Allen! Those veggies do look delish! I enjoyed buying some homemade soaps, salsa and bread last year at the market as well! There's no honey like Hummer's either! Yummy!

Thanks Pocahontas! This was the first article where I had the chance to interview someone. I met some really nice folks writing this one. And I learned a lot of things about bees that I didn't know before.

Happy Mothers Day!!

I made my Saturday morning trip to the market this morning 6/16/07 and these photos might help for those of you that might hesitate to go. There is more than just veggies and these photos will help. I have a few names that will go with the photos. Nothing like fresh summer time veggies
Sweet Corn

This is one of my favorite stops. Eric and Amy Drabwell have whole grain bread and other kinds of white bread and cookies. His email is eric@drabwell.com and he is a very nice man.

Do they ever have live music at the Farmers Market ? I have heard of other places like this one that will have a band play
