Shreveport Farmers' Market

Kate Archer Kent

A pair of Bossier City entrepreneurs will launch an almost year-round farmer’s market at Pierre Bossier Mall Saturday. Jacob Guerra fondly recalls frequenting a farmer’s market growing up in Orlando, Florida.

Guerra says the Shreveport Farmers Market and many smaller ones in the area have a short season. Guerra wants to create a market for all seasons. Saturday’s market will feature 75 vendors with room for 200 in the future.
