Community farms, markets and fresh food stands to source local produce in Baton Rouge

Why shop at big-box grocery stores for produce when you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables from local growers? For decades, Baton Rouge has dealt with a food desert problem. But locals are providing their own solution with new fresh-food stands, open-air markets and community farms all over town. Shop local produce from one of these businesses for your holiday meals.
