Beat the heat with the meat of a sweet melon! Our farmers are bringing watermelons, cantaloupes, and honeydews by the truckload. In fact, one of our farmers, Timmy Perilloux, had to bring two trucks on Saturday to get his fresh melons to market. As he cut up a cantaloupe at the Wednesday market, he tried to convince us that his melons are so sweet they make sugar taste salty! Find out for yourself at the farmers market this week.
Calling all cheese fiends! Continental Provisions will be hosting a cheesemaking demo this Wednesday at the French Market. Last year they served fresh mozzarella atop our farmers fresh tomatoes, so don’t miss out! And on Saturday, be sure to catch the tasteful tunes of the Messy Cookers Jazz Band.

Our Saturday morning Crescent City Farmers Market is looking for a new home. We are very thankful that Reily Foods Company has allowed us to run our flagship market on their property at the intersection of Magazine and Girod Streets for the past 20 years. Please help us find our next 20 year home! We are interested in your ideas and will submit locations that meet our criteria to our staff, board and vendors for their consideration. We are looking for a space that will house 25-35 vendors along with 10 foot tents for each. Additionally, we aim to have room for shopper seating and market events. Thank you for your support of the Crescent City Farmers Market!
