Happy Halloween! We love this holiday so much that we're extending the costuming and celebrating through to this weekend for our first Saturday of the month Marketeer activity. Kids, put on those costumes one more time and come do the Market Mash with us this Saturday, November 5. No tricks - just more treats! Make your way through the market for treats like kettlecorn, Ryals Rocking R Dairy chocolate milk and Plaquemines Parish satsumas. Market Mash trick-or-treating is free and open to the public while supplies last, so come early!
