State officials say a new Internet marketing program is expected to increase sales for Louisiana farmers and fishermen.

The state agriculture and wildlife and fisheries departments are contracting with MarketMaker, through which wholesale buyers, restaurants, grocers and the general public can find and purchase
products from Louisiana farmers and fishermen.

The program will satisfy both the demand for fresh, local products as well as pay a better price to farmers and fishermen.
