Louisiana is currently in Phase 3 of pandemic recovery and hoping to move into future phases soon. Are you ready to get back out and start patronizing area businesses? Here are some ways you can support local business around the Baton Rouge community all while staying safe.
Sushi Yama – Located at Perkins Crossing Shopping Center, Susah Yama has been featured as a top Baton Rouge sushi bar on Yelp and Trip Advisor, as well as being featured in several local magazines. The casual and family-friendly restaurant has been open since 2006 and prides itself in offering some of the freshest sushi in the Gulf Coast. Visit them for lunch or dinner Monday-Saturday at 7731 Perkins Road.
Downtown Baton Rouge – The Downtown Development District works to initiate, incubate and support partnerships that develop and enhance the downtown area. The pandemic put a lot of events on hold, but Downtown is beginning to open its doors again to safe public gatherings, including the Red Stick Farmer’s Market and the popular Sunday in the Park outdoor concert series presented by Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge. Check out DDD’s website for more events.
Roly Poly – While you’re downtown, check out some of the food options, such as Roly Poly. The menu includes a variety of hot and cold wrap options, as well as salads and soups for the colder days ahead. It’s a quick and easy way to get a nutritious lunch. Plus, you can enjoy it right outside in the beautiful North Boulevard Town Square. This location also provides breakfast wraps and has trays available to cater your event! Call 225.412.4234 for hours and more information.
West Baton Rouge Museum – In the smaller, quaint town of Port Allen is a hidden gem – the West Baton Rouge Parish Museum. The museum is an educational resource committed to researching, collecting, preserving and presenting artifacts, documents and art objects that reflect the history and cultural heritage of West Baton Rouge Parish and the surrounding areas. Take an afternoon to learn area history, see new exhibits or participate in a craft workshop. Check out their calendar of events at https://westbatonrougemuseum.org/.
Mid City Makers Market – Start your holiday shopping and support local artists, bakers and makers at this outdoor event. Now held at Electric Depot, local vendors are able to set up their tables of crafts, food and other items for a unique shopping experience. The monthly markets have been going strong for nearly 5 years, bringing the local community together. Grab your mask and head out for a fun evening.
