[Update 03.19.20]: Market Suspended

The Charlestown Farmers Market is suspending its Saturday market at Historic City Hall Arts & Cultural Center due to growing concerns related to the spread of COVID-19. The suspension will last at least through March 28. 

“The health and wellness of our community is our top priority, and we must make sure we are making decisions in their best interest under the advisement of public health officials,” said Carolyn Smith, Market Manager. “We plan to reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.”

For more information, please contact 337 491-9159.


The Market highlights Louisiana-made items including seasonal produce, eggs, grass-fed beef, pork and lamb; gumbo, canned goods, baked goods, local honey, organic juices, plants, and homemade arts & crafts. All vendors must supply their own tents and tables.

The Charlestown Farmers' Market provides a great outlet for local farmers to sell their produce, as well as increases awareness of downtown businesses and events.

  • The downtown market (Bilbo St. behind the Historic City Hall Arts & Cultural Center, 1001 Ryan St.) is held every Saturday from 8 a.m. - noon. In the event of rain, the market will be moved into the 1st floor of the building.
