Seeing that need, The Louisiana Department of Agriculture is launching a new online tool for those looking to get their hands on farm-fresh food.

According to the website many sellers are now incorporating safe alternatives in order to to bring farm-fresh food directly to households, including home delivery, curbside pickup, and drive-thru farmers markets.

If you have a business selling farm-fresh food, there is a link that you can fill out to be included in the directory.
