The first 50 people to attend Alexander’s Highland Market’s October Pop-Up Farmers Market on Sunday, Oct. 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 18111 Highland Market Drive and visit Southern Art’s booth will receive a free bottle of Southern Art No. 1 Handcrafted Hot Sauce, a local product recently named a Martha Stewart American Made 2014 Food Finalist.
For 70 years, the Romero family of Youngsville, La., has owned and operated Three Brothers Farm, a 29-acre site in Lafayette Parish specializing in harvesting sugar cane. From the homegrown sugarcane, father-and-son co-owners Bob and Chris Romero produce, package, and sell raw sugar in their FDA-approved kitchen with no additives or preservatives. Alexander’s recently began carrying the local all-natural product in 1- and 3-lb containers. “We’ve been active in the New Orleans market for years,” says Bob Romero, “but we’re just getting into your area.”
