Happy holidays from the farmers, fishermen and all your friends at the CCFM! Shoppers have been asking about our holiday hours. Fret not, we will be open Tuesday, December 20, Thursday, December 22 and Saturday, December 31, taking a break only on Saturday, December 24 for Christmas Eve. We're so thankful for our wonderful market community and wish everyone a wonderful holiday. YOU are the best gift we're given each year!

Tuesday Market, December 20, 2011 | 9 am - 1 pm

Uptown New Orleans | 200 Broadway Street at the River

This week we welcome John Bartlett, a favorite at our Thursday market, to our Tuesday market. With his beautiful produce and cut flowers, we're sure John's table will quickly become a Tuesday hot spot as well. Bok choy, radishes, carrots and more! Stop by and introduce yourself to John Tuesday morning. Also be on the lookout for Cajun Grain's new rice grits. An innovative (and gluten free!) addition to the breakfast table, we're excited to add these to our cupboards.

Things are hectic this week. Take a quick break and enjoy some delicious food from Geaux Plates' big silver truck while getting some last minute market shopping done. During a season of heavy, traditional meals, a Vietnamese po-boy might be just what you need!

Thursday Market, December 22, 2011 | 3 pm - 7 pm

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

Last market before the big day! We'll be there from 3-7pm for you to stock up on any last minute supplies you need. From dairy to bread to veggies to fruit, the Thursday market has all you need for your holiday table. With our twinkling lights, a trip to the market is a great way to get in the holiday spirit while also getting a break from the hard core hustle and bustle.

Saturday Market, December 24, 2011 | Market Closed

Downtown New Orleans | 700 Magazine Street at Girod

Market will be closed December 24, Christmas Eve. Enjoy your holiday and look for us again next Saturday, New Years Eve. Wishing everyone a restful and delicious holiday weekend!
