Fresh Item of the Week

fresh item of the week

Just a few days left to submit those Crescent Fund proposals! Twice a year we award funds to projects that reinforce the CCFM's belief in linking public markets with public good. Projects must fit into one of two categories: public market vendors and community efforts. During each cycle the Market community selects two projects (one per category) via at market and online voting. Each will receive up to a $500 cash infusion. Selected recipients pay the market community back via time, talent or treasure. Click here to submit your proposal by this Friday's (11.19) deadline.

Uptown New Orleans | 200 Broadway Street at the River

Check us out! This past Friday USA Today named the CCFM one of ten great places to sample local flavor. And that's not all! Southern Living editors recently taste-tested more than 200 artisan foods, including CCFM vendor White Wood Farms' satsuma jam, which was included in its Food Lover's Gift Guide. In celebration, Anita deBoisblanc of White Wood Farms is gifting those who purchase $50 or more in tokens at the Market Welcome Tent a FREE jar of jam, while supplies last.

This Tuesday we welcome certified organic L'Hoste Citrus back to the Market and Bywater cafe Satsuma back to the Green Plate Special tent. Stop by the L'Hoste's table for first of the season citrus, and the GPS tent for quiche, lentil stew, roasted beet salad, salmon salad sandwiches, gluten-free pie and satsuma limeade.

Thursday Market, November 18, 2010 | 3 pm - 7 pm

Mid-City New Orleans | 3700 Orleans Avenue at the Bayou

The countdown is on! Just one more week until turkey frying time. The CCFM is partnering with the Gulfsouth Youth Biodiesel Project (GYBP), a program of Operation REACH, Inc. to collect used cooking oil from households frying turkeys this Thanksgiving. The collection campaign runs from November 29th to December 4th. All cooking oil will be used to train youth and produce eco-friendly biodiesel fuel. Click here for more information and a list of all drop-off locations, including the CCFM, or stop by and chat with them this Thursday or Saturday.

Saturday Market, November 20, 2010 | 8 am - 12 pm

Downtown New Orleans | 700 Magazine Street at Girod

The Market is bursting at the seams with greens right now. After recently tasting Chef Aaron Burgau's incredibly delicious creamed collards at Patois, we decided to give them a whirl. While Aaron and other chefs who shop at the CCFM may be able to freestyle it, we needed a little help, so we turned to the new Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook, which we highly recommend. Linton Hopkins' recipe for Brown Butter Creamed Winter Greens is reason enough to buy the book.

Recipe of the Week

Louisiana citrus season got off to a bit of a slow start this year, but it's well underway now that both the L'Hoste's and A&K Citrus are back at the Market. Pick up a few sacks for this Satsuma Cane Syrup Pecan Pie.
