When Life Doesn’t Give You Lemons…

While this season’s harvest of citrus is abundant in satsumas, navels, and grapefruit, you might be wondering - where are the lemons? How do I add acidity to my pico? How will I live without my rosemary lemon infused water? What if I wanted to make a dried lemon garland to hang above the fireplace I never actually use for the holidays? Lemons will be few and far between this year at the market, folks. This is due to the hard, days-long freeze we endured January 2018 - remember, the one that killed all the bananas, palms and other shrubbery in town? Lemon and lime trees are the citrus most susceptible to cold weather and many vendors, including all three CCFM citrus growers, experienced tree loss at the hands of the cold. While they have replanted, the new trees will not be harvestable for some time and trees that survived are not producing much. You can find limited offerings at the tables of Star Nursery and L’Hoste Citrus, so squeeze the day! Get these delicacies while you can because they won’t be around for long!

Pick of the weekIt’s been just over a month since we launched the Crescent City Farmers Market App! Since we first shared this exciting news, vendors like South of Eden and Two Dog Farms have hopped on board, meaning a bigger selection of items for you to view and purchase while you’re at home, at the office or on the go.

Simplify your holiday meal planning and avoid the cold by browsing available items, and placing orders in advance to make sure you get everything on your shopping list. Need gift ideas for your foodie friends and family? The CCFM app has got you covered, with items like hot sauce and veggie celebrity printed stationery and clothing from River Queen Greens, handmade soaps featuring locally sourced ingredients from Essentially NOLA and Two Dog Farms, tea blends from Spicy Lady and J&D Blueberry Farms, pickled veggies from Poche Farms and Pickled NOLA, or a Crescent City Farmers Market T-Shirt from yours truly!

Pick of the weekOver these last 3 months, New Orleans residents have had the chance to experience something new getting around town: an integrated transportation network demonstration called Connect The Crescent.

Sadly, the protected bikeways we've grown accustomed to riding, including the Baronne bikeway near our Saturday CBD market, will only be up for a couple more weeks. So while the pop-up network is still up, go for a ride or a walk, and then show your support for safe, accessible transportation options for every New Orleans resident by taking the survey below.

Take this Bike Easy Transportation Choices Survey now to support safety for bikers and walkers!

Vendor of the WeekTimmy Perilloux

CCFM Vendor of the Week

Beloved giant vegetable farmer from Montz, Louisiana Timmy Perilloux has been with the market for over 15 years. You may have noticed that he missed his usual November return to the Saturday CBD, Thursday Mid-City, and Tuesday Uptown markets. Due to unusually high amounts and frequency of rains since August, his crops are “gone pecan” as Timmy would say. For now, you can catch him at the French Quarter Market on Wednesdays, and he expects to be back at Tuesday and Thursday markets in full swing by April.

Green Plate SpecialChef Aaron Burgau is the Green Plate Special

Available at the Tuesday Market

Our good friends Greg and Mary Sonnier of Gabrielle Restaurant will join us under the GPS tent the remainder of the month to complete a year of local chefs committed to cooking with local ingredients at the Uptown Market. Originally located on Esplanade Avenue, Gabrielle Restaurant re-opened its doors on Orleans Avenue in September 2017 after a twelve year Hurricane Katrina hiatus. Award-winning Chef Greg Sonnier serves his take on Cajun food with New Orleans flair and on the menu this week is broccoli and cheddar cheese soup, roasted red pepper chili with cornbread, Muffaletta pasta salad, and more. Come out for some heartwarming dishes to keep you cozy in this chilly weather!

Recipe of the WeekCauliflower Rice

CCFM Recipe of the Week

By now you’ve almost certainly heard of cauliflower rice, the low carb rice substitute that people are raving about. But did you know that it’s super easy to make? Grab a cheese grater or food processor, grate away, saute for a few minutes and season it how you’d like. It goes great with curry, beans, or under a stir-fry. Grab a head or two from Monica’s Okra World or Star Nursery.
