ELTON, LA (KPLC) - The Coushatta Farmers' Market will end its spring season on Saturday, June 1 from 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Koasati Plaza.

The market will end with its first "Market Fun Fest."

Market organizers said it will feature activities, games and prizes for the family.

"This has been an outstanding Farmers' Market season and we are closing it out in an exciting way," said David Sickey, Coushatta Tribe Member-of-Council. "We're inviting everyone in the area to come out, enjoy some great music, fun and games with their families and take home some delicious local produce and homemade food items."

Vendors must register first and pay a $10 fee, according to organizers. Registration can be completed by calling or online. All products must be produced or grown by the vendor. No commercial or imported products are online.

Sponsors for this event are the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana, the Imperial Calcasieu Resource Conservation and Development Council, the Lake Charles Coca-Cola Bottling Company and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Marketing Service.

The market will return Oct. 5 for the fall season.
