Only a few months in, one Grambling city councilman thinks the Grambling Farmers Market can grow bigger than it already has.
Councilman G. Denise Dupree said the market has seen on average eight vendors and more than 100 community members shop at the Grambling Farmers Market.
“It’s been a real accomplishment for the city,” she said. “We have had great turnouts, but I know it will continue to grow once the weather gets nicer and the word continues to spread.”
Dupree said the market is still looking for more vendors to participate.
With holiday dinners to plan and the perfect present to find added to the daily grind, many people are pushed to find gifts online.
And then there are those who may be tempted to find ways to pick up a little extra cash while they’re at it. While browsing online, residents run the risk of encountering the many scammers and swindlers who also access the Internet.
Lt. Erica Hanna, an investigator with the Ruston Police Department, said one of the most common online scams encourages potential victims to become secret shoppers online.
