Louisiana Growers Cooperative
The newly formed Louisiana Growers Co-Op consists of 2 Acre Farm from Marrero, LA, Stoney Point Farm from Stoney Point, LA and Triple Eaton Farm from Mt. Olive, MS. You’ll find these guys at Saturday market with specialty produce, all grown without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. In addition to eggplant, squash, and cucumbers, you’ll find fresh herbs, honey, turmeric and more at this table. Early season figs are now in, with watermelon soon to come. Enjoy creole tomatoes from the field now before the season is over, and hydroponic heirloom tomatoes all year long. Come visit Elvia Chauvin on Saturdays at Rivertown at this vendor stall and you’ll quickly make friends with a local farmer, beekeeper and co-op operator!
