Gustav's Threat Closes Saturday & Tuesday Markets

With Gustav's uncertain track and concerns for farmers and fishers traveling into a city that may indeed undergo mandatory evacuation,

we have made the decision to close the Saturday, August 30 Crescent City Farmers Market at 700 Magazine Street and the Tuesday, September 2 Crescent City Farmers Market at Tulane University Square.

Please be safe, cross fingers and make wise decisions. We look forward to seeing everyone in a week's time, Saturday, September 6.
