'225 Dine': Main Street Market set for fall kick-off Saturday
Though Isaac caused the temporary closure of the Thursday Red Stick Farmers Market (which will return next week at its usual spot at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center), the Main Street Market downtown is gearing up for a big Labor Day weekend, with several events to kick off the fall season on Saturday, says BREADA Executive Director Copper Alvarez. Food artisans will showcase tailgating suggestions for football fans, among others, who can visit the market between 8 a.m. and noon—hours before LSU kicks off its season in a game with North Texas in Tiger Stadium at 6 p.m. The market will also have lots of late summer vegetables, fresh eggs, baked breads and desserts, meats, cheeses, dairy items and fresh Gulf seafood. The John Gray Jazz Trio will perform throughout the morning, and Liz Lopes will share her face-painting talents. The Arts Market will also take place in the adjacent surface lot.
