South Louisiana, around Lafayette and New Iberia has produced large quantities of rock salt for many years. International Salt at Avery Island (Yeah, the place Tabasco Suace comes from), and Diamond Crystal Salt at Jefferson Island. The latter suffered a collapse a while back and closed, but believe Avery Island still ships salt on the Louisiana & Delta.
Back in the era of this list, Avery Island was on the T&NO (SP) and Jefferson Island was on the MP. These two were in my PRR sales territory.

Tim O'Connor asked:
Other than lower Michigan, the Kansas City area, and upstate New York, what other areas of the country produce rock salt in great quantities?
