Add some value to your week!

It’s hot in the summertime, and in Louisiana, we have fewer heat-loving vegetables than cold-loving ones. Due to heat, pests, and excessive rain, the summer is also the most challenging to grow in! Sure, we have plenty of okra, squash, peppers, and eggplant, but other varieties of fruits and vegetables are challenging to grow.

While the season is winding down, we recommend you check out the many of our value added items at the market! Nur’s Kitchen has many varieties of hummus and lentils, Spicy Lady has every type of seasoning you could imagine, Paul’s Palate has pesto for every taste bud, and several of our vendors make their own hot sauce! Many of our vendors also take their vegetables and pickle them, like pickled okra and bread and butter pickles. Use the hot season to explore products you wouldn’t normally try!
