Serious dog person but currently can’t have my own since I am in college. I grew up with a squirrel-obsessed beagle who hated walks but went on them anyway with some encouragement. Love to volunteer at the campus shelter during the semesters but stuck at home with online classes.

Lafayette Horse Farm in the Louisiana-Lafayette/Johnston Street neighborhood is a favorite Saturday morning attraction for the locals because of its Farmers Market. The market has a convenient location and fits perfectly among other shopping and dining spots in the neighborhood, and it's always buzzing with people looking for something new. If you’re thinking of treating your canine companion with something tasty, fresh and locally made, you'll want to stop by.
