The Department of Agriculture and Forestry's Market Development Division publishes the Louisiana Market Bulletin for the purpose of promoting and advancing agriculture and forestry. First published in 1906, the Market Bulletin is a biweekly classified advertising publication that assists Louisiana residents to market their products and services that are not normally available through commercial channels. The publication is used to buy and sell all types of garden, home and farm equipment and also provides news and information to the agricultural community. A yearly subscription for the Market Bulletin can be purchased for around $10.
