Alexander’s will hold the first pop-up farmers market of the fall season Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016, from 10-2. Sip local beers and sample other homegrown foods like honey, persimmons, farm-raised eggs, and homemade jams. Survey handcrafted goods, including custom Cajun spoons from Louisiana woods, tailgating tips and spirit aprons from Aimee Broussard, and local artwork by Carolyn Rodrigue and Lauren Sibley.
In addition, Junior League of Baton Rouge will sample Pecan Pie Muffins and a few other treats from their River Road cookbooks as they celebrate the 80th reprint of the famous series and its contribution to charitable groups in our community. Pennington Biomedical Research Center will sample healthy chermoula dip and hand out healthy eating tips while kids enjoy face painting near our pumpkin patch.

Alexander also notes that folks in South Louisiana place a premium on fresh food grown and produced locally, which tends to be better for you and better for the environment. “Eating local is not a passing fad,” he adds. “It’s a way of life.
