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.

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.

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.
