Fresh Item of the Week
Tuesday Market, May 22, 2012 | 9 am - 1 pm
Crawfish, glorious crawfish... We love a good crawfish boil on a lazy Sunday afternoon. While trying to plan our most recent foray into this fun tradition, we realized that a crawfish boil is an incredibly local meal. When planning your next boil, think about sourcing your boil lagniappe locally. Fresh corn, artichokes, onions and smoked sausage can all be purchased at the CCFM. What else do you include in your boil? Join the conversation at our facebook page.
Thursday Market, May 24, 2012 | 3 pm - 7 pm
Our Thursday market is bursting at the seams with delicious, ripe seasonal fruit - strawberries, blueberries, Chilton County peaches and plums. Think of all the amazing things you can do with this bounty of local fruit: fruit salads, smoothies, ice cream, cobblers and crumbles, pies and preserves. Speaking of preserves, we’ve got some exciting canning and preserving demos coming to the market in the next few months. Stay informed by “liking” our Crescent City Farmers Market facebook page.
