Gear up for all your upcoming holiday parties at our Tuesday market. Bags of Plaquemines Parish satsumas from either A & K Citrus or L'Hoste Citrus make delicious, healthy hostess gifts. Grab some of Bill Ryals' raw goat milk cheddar for a fantastic holiday cheeseboard, or pick up fresh spinach from Timmy Perilloux for dips and salads. What are your favorite holiday party treats? Share them with us on our Crescent City Farmers Market Facebook page.

Saturday Market, December 10, 2011 | 8 am - 12 noon
Need a great gift for the cook in your family? Join us this Saturday for a cookbook signing with longtime CCFM supporter and local farmer friend Chef John Besh. He'll sign his newest cookbook: My Family Table: A Passionate Plea for Home Cooking until around 11am, and show us how to make one of the delicious recipes featured in it. In My Family Table, the Iron Chef champion makes a case for the importance of home-cooked meals. "If I can help make a difference by cooking simply and sharing what I love to cook, I can possibly help us all use our passions and skills to make our lives better at almost every meal."
