Buy local. Buy fresh.

Rain or shine, Metairie's open-air market will feature fresh foods, live music, kids entertainment, specialty events, festivals, breakfast and lunch items, and a great community vibe.

Metairie's Farmers Market features local growers of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, plants, flowers, herbs and artisan cheese makers. Local ranchers bring antibiotic and hormone free chicken, beef, lamb, goat, pork, bison and fresh fish to the market.  The meats are grass fed and grass finished, unlike the grocery store meats that may be labelled grass-fed but usually is fattened up on grains, thus not grass finished. They will have organic pasture raised eggs, low temperature, non-homogenized milk, raw cheeses, delicious yogurt, probiotic vegetables.

The prepared food vendors use the farmers’ products as much as possible.  They emphasize organically grown, healthful foods and preparation in addition to being delicious.
