Finding Local (Even Organic) Produce/Meat/Eggs?

Hi All,

I just moved to NOLA from New York and I have to say I was excited about hitting up the farmer's market, and figured that there would be a lot more local agriculture given the growing conditions down here. So far though, the options seem limited. And while chickens aren't plants, of course, I'm particularly dying for fresh local farm eggs - after you've had good farm eggs it's hard to go back to the pale yellow ones you get at the supermarket, even a good supermarket. I've tried researching CSAs and haven't found any around the area. I'd be willing to drive up to an hour or so on weekends - does anyone know of a relatively local source (e.g., under 100 miles from NOLA) for local eggs and meat that are at least raised humanely and without antibiotics if not organically? A source for organic veggies would be great too.

Thanks,
Kara
