I will be traveling on Monday going to Monroe LA. I am in desperate need of helping finding organics to eat while there. I am taking my blender, and wheatgrass juicer.
I am trying to help my father who has liver cancer, but also, I must eat while there too.

I found a little info, but I'm not sure how close it is to you. Hopefully someone will reply with more personal knowledge of LA. But in the meantime, here's what I found:
West Monroe Farmers Market
1700 North 7th Street 1700 North 7th Street
West Monroe, LA 71291
Spring Forth Health Food
1007 Sterlington Road, Monroe, LA 71203
Phone: (318) 388-3243
Fax: (318) 322-1910
I hope this helps, and pray for the restored health of your father.

You guys are something else! I have only been to Monroe once in my life, so this will definitely help.

i'm originally from north LA (about 30 minutes from Monroe), and while i'm not too familiar with the farmer's markets and things there, I can say that all except one of those listed by lifeAgift are located at least 1-4 hours from Monroe either in south LA or northwest LA (monroe is in northeast). and you may be willing to travel far in order to find what you're looking for, but i just thought i'd let you know.
and i wanna thank you for that list, lifeAgift, since i am currently living in south LA and find it of great use :D. lol!
although, i don't know exactly where it is, i did find that pioneer, la isn't that far from monroe.
also, the grocery store Super1foods here where i live has a decent selection of organic produce. there's one located in monroe.
Super 1 Foods #607
Monroe, LA 71201
7 Days a Week: 6 a.m. - Midnight
you may have to inquire as to whether they have organic or not, cause out of the two located here, only one carries organic.
there's also the farmer's market in farmerville, la, which is about 30 minutes from monroe:
Union Parish Farmers Market
407 South Main Street
Farmerville, LA 71241
