Due to COVID-19 and two hurricanes, a lot of things in Southwest Louisiana have been forced to close, which gives folks in the area nothing to do on a beautiful weekend in the Lake Area.

Well, good news! The city of Lake Charles has announced the Charlestown Farmers Market will reopen this Saturday, November 7. The market will be open from 8:00am to 12:00pm this Saturday.

The good news for residents is that the Charlestown Farmers Market is a weekly market, and once they open this Saturday, it will remain open every Saturday after that. The market is open to the public and there is no admission to visit it.

The Charlestown Farmers Market features local and fresh produce and goods, and the goal and reason they do this market is to support local farmers and businesses in the Southwest Louisiana area. Shop for fresh fruits and veggies and other unique items while getting outside and just feeling normal again.

You can also enjoy live music from local musicians while you shop and visit with family and friends while doing something really fun on a Saturday morning in Lake Charles.
