Shopping at Opelousas Farmers Market
Enjoy meeting the local characters and farmers while shopping at the Opelousas Farmers Market.

The slow food, buy local movement that is all the rage across the country is nothing new to us. We’ve long known that the best-tasting fruits and veggies come from Louisiana farms and farmers. If you haven’t been to a farmers market, be sure to plan a trip. Many communities host their own weekly markets that also feature live music and arts and crafts. But don’t just shop, get to know our local growers!

We sugguest you call and check the market's website for seasonal days or change of location and time.
