Zachary’s 2nd Saturday Community Market is an open-air market and cultural event held the second Saturday of every month from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. in historic downtown Zachary at Florida and Virginia Streets. The market is held in conjunction with the weekly Zachary Farmers Market and is a project of the 2nd Saturday Community Market Board and The Zachary Historical Village.
The mission of 2nd Saturday Community Market is to provide a place for small family businesses to sell their goods directly to consumers by creating a sense of community and by allowing local artists to sell directly to the public.
The market also encourages the production of quality handmade arts, crafts and goods and it informs the community about local organizations, clubs and businesses.
"The purpose of this community market is to bring people together from throughout the Zachary community and surrounding areas to enjoy the city’s history and culture," said Courtney Yoes, market director.
The 2nd Saturday Community Market is a producer-only event, meaning artists must create what they sell. The market features items such as jewelry, painting, pottery, quilts, custom-made furniture, stained and blown glass, harvest and heritage crafts, photography, woodwork, sculpture, mixed media, baked goods, candy, home-made canned goods, soaps, candles, plants and much more.
