Grow Dat market opens by Melinda Shelton

Here’s more good news for farmers market supporters: the Grow Dat Youth Farm at City Park launches its new Saturday market on Nov. 16 from 9 a.m. to noon. Farm assistant and market manager Sarah Howard said youngsters from the area grow a variety of vegetables, herbs and flowers at the farm, which is located at 150 Zachary Taylor Drive, between NOLA City Bark and Pan Am stadium.

Howard said youth learn organic farming—and leadership skills—at the program’s eco-campus, which includes buildings created out of lime-green painted shipping containers. For more information, email Howard at, or call 504.598.2743. She said visitors will receive a tour.
