Shreveport Farmers' Market is currently held under the pavilions at Festival Plaza in Downtown Shreveport. That's 101 Crockett St. where Crockett St. and Commerce St. intersect.
As a covered market, with ceiling fans for the hottest days, our market takes place "rain or shine." The only time we'll close is in the case of a major weather warning issued by the National Weather Service.
The 2015 Market takes place from 5/30 through 8/29, with the exception of June 20, when we will be closed due to the Good Times Festival. If you'd like to apply to be a vendor, do so under "about us" and "vendor login/apply." We always keep a waiting list, so feel free to apply, and we'll call you when we need someone.
Public parking is available on streets at meters (free on Saturdays), behind Riverview Hall, or on the lower level of Festival Plaza adjacent to SciPort. Handicapped parking is available on Commerce St., or in the Overlook Lot close to the pavilion. As of 2015, there is a shuttle service running between Shreveport Farmers' Market and Shreveport Artists' Market in the Red River District under the Texas Street Bridge.

There are public restrooms and an ATM on site.
Many of our vendors accept food coupons from the Louisiana Farmers' Market Nutrition Program and the WIC Program. For more information on the Senior program, contact Caddo Council on Aging. We also accept SNAP (formerly Food Stamps.) Just stop by The Info Tower to slide your card, and receive tokens to spend with participating vendors.
Please note: Only service animals are allowed in the market, but please pick up a nice treat for your pet when you visit.

MISSION STATEMENT: The mission of Shreveport Farmers’ Market is to encourage a strong local food system; increase sustainability of independent local farmers, ranchers, and food producers; and foster stewardship of land and community through public markets.
We seek to provide a forum creating community among farmers, other vendors, and our community, while educating consumers, offering a market for farmers to sell their goods, serving as a business incubator for food artisans, and bring together people from the Northwest Louisiana, Far East Texas, and Southern Arkansas region.
