Happy Valentine's Day! Heather Robertson of Johndale Farm has delicious locally-sourced gifts for your sweetie: chocolate-covered Ponchatoula strawberries. Stop by White Oaks Farm's table for a beautiful selection of fresh cut flowers. Or get creative and show your love with the gift of a home-cooked, market-sourced meal, compete with a bouquet of greens wrapped up like flowers!

We're sad to say that Jesse Gaudet of Plant Diversity will soon be leaving us to move to Austin. The silver lining is that before he goes, Jesse wants to liquidate his incredibly diverse plant inventory by offering them at great prices. Stop by his table for succulents, vegetable starts, herbs and ornamental plants before they're all gone. Bonus: This week he'll also have hard to find mirliton plants available!
Market, February 18, 2012 | 8 am - 12 noon
The day we've all been waiting for is finally here - our annual CCFM king cake tasting! There's still time to weigh in on who bakes the city's best king cake on our CCFM Facebook page. Nominations will be taken until Wednesday at noon. Also, due to the busy parade schedule, the market will close at 11 am this Saturday. The market will also be closed next Tuesday. Happy Mardi Gras everyone!
of the Week
Market staff has a bit of an obsession with Shrimp and Grits, so much that when Cajun Grain came out with rice grits made from the brown jasmine rice, we ran home and created a special recipe including all kind of market goodies: jumbo shrimp from Clara Gerica, shiitake mushrooms from Mississippi Natural Products, butter from Mauthe's Progress Milk Barn, milk and goat cheese from Ryals Rocking R Dairy, and of course, rice grits from Cajun Grain.
