The Bossier City Farmers Market has space for over 200 vendors this year and is already expected to host more than 100. With a wealth of local fresh veggies and fruits, this farmers market has more than just goods from out of the ground. There are varieties of homemade jams, salsas, honey, jellies, pickles, and anything else you can can. There will be tamales, smoked BBQ, boudin, plus all the classic Southern comfort foods. Locals and visitors can refresh with hand-squeezed lemonade, shaved ice, or a real fruit smoothie. Handmade soaps, flower arrangements, kettle corn, seasoning blends, and so much MORE will be available!

We could go on forever about all the amazing, quality goods these farmers and locals spend their time preparing for you all year long, but we’ll let you see the rest for yourself.

If you’re someone who loves locals and fresh handmade goods, come out to this family-friendly event. It is the best way to support your community. Plus it’s free, open to the public, and even welcomes leashed pets.
