Surge of growth at Shreveport Farmer's Market edges crafters out of the site; Red River District Artists Market created for artisans

Evan McCommon, Shreveport

"Unfortunately, the farmers' market has taken another surge of growth," says Noma Fowler-Sandlin. "Shreveport Farmer's Market won't be able to accept craftspeople. However, the Red River District is starting Shreveport Artists' Market, and the two will be connected with the Market 2 Market shuttle."

Fowler-Sandlin, a keen student of market dynamics, says "It can be very cool. I hope people take advantage of getting into the ground floor of another cool event!"
