BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A new mobile farmers market will try to bring more fresh fruits and vegetables to the inner city.
The Red Stick Mobile Farmers Market held a kick-off celebration Wednesday afternoon that included food sampling, free recipe and nutrition cards and tips on purchasing and storing fresh produce.
The new Red Stick Mobile Farmers Market will provide a consistent retail source of locally grown, farm fresh produce in North Baton Rouge.
After Wednesday's grand opening, it will operate every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Scotlandville Branch Library, 7373 Scenic Highway, and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Star Hill, 1400 North Foster Drive.
Plans call for the new mobile market to expand to six to eight locations later this year.
