The German Coast Farmers’ Market has been named Louisiana’s Favorite Farmers’ Market and ranked 8th in the United States for small markets by American Farmland Trust. More than 80,000 people across the country voted in this year’s "America’s Favorite Farmers Markets" contest.

"Winning the contest for the second consecutive year demonstrates our exceptional patron loyalty and their appreciation for our local, hard-working farmers and vendors," Roxanne Fisher, GCFM Public Relations Coordinator, said. "The market board was humbled by the hundreds of patrons who took the time to comment on why they thought our market should win. The central theme of the comments further validated our mission to serve as a community gathering place and tourist destination while offering a wide range of fresh produce and fruit, value-added items, local entertainment and educational opportunities to our patrons."
