While winter is great for holiday cheer and getting together with family, the colder weather can make it a hassle to go outside and shop around at local farmers markets. Luckily, most of the South doesn't have to worry about staying in during the winter months.
According to a study by Lawn Love, which ranked 41 of the best warm cities for winter farmers markets, Louisiana has three of the best cities for that in the country. Out of 41 warm cities, New Orleans is ranked 23rd, Baton Rouge is 33rd, and Shreveport is 39th. The top three cities in the study are Los Angeles, Honolulu, and Miami.
The study particularly looked for the number of markets to visit throughout the winter season, as well as walkability and good weather. For New Orleans in particular, the city is ranked 7th for winter farmers markets, 7th for its walk score, and 24th for its number of very cold days in winter.
