Farmer's Market on the riverfront, Festival Plaza, Shreveport, sporting giant & cooling canopy; Weds & Sats, 7 am to 11:30 am
Sheila Kelly proferred her home-made herbed butters as well as a china butter keeper. Noma Fowler-Sandlin had all manner of jellies, from blueberry to mint tea. Chris Fowler-Sandlin, bibliophile ("Bibliomaniac is more like it,"quipped Noma; "It's gone well past - philia.") had used books, uncluding National Book Awards and Newberry Award books. "I'm selling books I bought in Britain online as well as here," he explained.
Nearby were vendors selling salsas, pastas, flowers, melons, fruit and vegetables, fruit smoothies and more.
It is a swell scene Sats from 7 am (to get a good slot vendors are arriving before 6 am) to 11:30. Many of the vendors are back on Weds, the same hours.
