Tuesday shoppers are in for a treat as we welcome citrus back to the Tuesday market (as well as the Thursday and Saturday markets). Market staff visited Star Nursery last week, and are happy to report that they saw everything from satsumas to grapefruit to navels (oh my!). In addition to having tons of immune boosting vitamin C, citrus also is relatively low in calories, high in everything from folate to phytochemicals and has been shown to prevent and slow cardiovascular disease, hypertension, anaemia and cancer. Stop by any of the three markets to pick up some satsumas and welcome Star Nursery to the market community!

Last week, Thursday market shoppers got a pleasant surprise with the return of naturally grown produce from Bartlett Farm. In addition to the gorgeous cut flowers, we saw beautiful bok choi, radishes, basil and farm eggs! Also, don't forget about our National Food Day celebration at the Thursday October 25th market with cooking demos, seed giveaways, treats for the kids and a free raffle of signed copies of Farm to Fork by Emeril Lagasse, The Art of Simple Food by Alice Waters, and Crescent City Farmers Market Cookbook by Poppy Tooker (stop by the Crescent City Farmers Market table that Thursday to enter).

This past Saturday it really felt like Fall at the market. In addition to the beautiful weather, we saw magnificent greens from the Monicas, luscious lettuces from Lucy Capdeboscq, the return of citrus to the Saturday market. Join us this Saturday to see what Autumn goodies are available at market. We hope you there!

A big thank you to Katrina and Carmello Turillo of La Divina Gelateria for donating all that delicious Sweet Potato gelato (available at the Magazine St. store currently) for our birthday festivities a few Saturdays ago.
