Owens Grocery and Market
Owens Grocery & Market has been serving the Valley Park community in Baton Rouge since 1938. Since then it has been a staple in the community, and a local meeting spot where locals could come for a hot meal or kind conversation. Cynthia Green has shifted the focus of Owens Grocery & Market to be mainly on hot breakfast and lunch since she inherited it from her parents in 1979. In 2019 they were recognized with a Pioneer Award from the Baton Rouge Soul Food Festival, a testament to their commitment to great food and feeding the community.
