Upper Ninth Ward Farmers Market at Douglass High School

Farmer’s markets are a great way to get healthy, local, seasonal produce direct from the person who grew it.  The health and environmental benefits of eating fresh and local are profound.  In some cases it is more economical to shop at farmer’s markets, though subsidies to large agri-businessness cut against this natural tendency.

This week, the Upper Ninth Ward Farmer’s Market moves a few blocks down St. Claude to Douglass High School,  3800 St. Claude at Alvar St.  It takes place every Saturday 1-4pm.  There is often a guest chef preparing hot lunches, and other special events.  Supporting sustainable, local food is great for the health of your body, your community and your planet!
