If you are one that enjoys shopping with local vendors and companies, then a new market in Downtown Lafayette may be the perfect addition to your weekend.

The Agora Open Air Market just opened less than a month ago and is already gaining significant traction with both customers and vendors.

Where is the Agora Open Air Market located?

The open-air market is located in a green space at 716 Lafayette Street in Downtown Lafayette. This is basically the same spot where that proposed monstrosity of a high-rise was planned (but then it fell through.)

Or, we could just go with it, "It's across the street from the public library."

What can I expect to find in this market?

According to Developing Lafayette, there are over 40 approved vendors with another 20 pending approval. Eventually, the market will reach capacity at 80+ vendors.

The products sold showcase a range of high-quality vendors. You'll find a wide variety of products including produce, art, crafts, jewelry, coffee, Italian Ice, and much more.

Follow Agora Open Air Market on Facebook to see examples of the products sold at the weekly event.

When is the market open?

The Agora Open Air Market is held every Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

According to a Facebook post, they are looking to add a "Food Truck Round-Up" event on Mondays. However, that is still in the planning stages and nothing definitive has been announced.

We sure wish everyone involved with this new venture the best of luck. It's sure good for Lafayette to have more choices!
