The struggling economy hit a lot of people pretty hard this year, but some Louisiana farmers aren't feeling the strain.

As the year comes to a close, folks selling their fruits and veggies at the Baton Rouge Farmers Market say 2009 has been a good year. Almost every week, their crops sell fast. They say it's because people still have to eat no matter what the economy is like.

But it's not all good news. This months rain has really put a damper on harvesting crops.
