Founded in 1996, BREADA has over twenty-years of experience in building a healthy, local food system with four weekly Red Stick Farmers Market locations as well as Main Street Market, a six-day a week public market located in downtown Baton Rouge. BREADA's network of markets not only provide a sustainable livelihood for small family farmers, but they also provide access to fresh food in underserved neighborhoods. BREADA's outreach programs focus on promotion of fresh, locally-grown foods and their health benefits to families through cooking demonstrations, nutrition education, and children's activities.

BREADA is committed to conducting its business, programs and Market activities according to the following core values:
-sustainability and growth of Louisiana's small family farms
-stewardship of land through fair and just agricultural practices
-community building through Markets that create healthy gathering places
-access to local foods to everyone, regardless of income

BREADA's outreach programs include:
-Red Stick Sprouts connecting kids with local food and farmers
-Red Stick Rewards matching fresh food purchases for low-income families
-LA Small Farm Survival Fund granting disaster relief for small farmers
-Nutrition Education teaching families and children about healthy eating
