Fall is coming to CCFM

Fresh & Local

We love learning more about the history of the delicious foods we eat in Louisiana and were excited to hear about a fantastic chance to do just that, while also checking out Tableau, Dickie Brennan’s newest restaurant! Learn about the connection and history between Creole food and the Amazon rainforests, while supporting the work of the Amazon Conservation Team and eating a delicious meal. Seating is limited, so get your tickets soon!

Pick of the Week: Greens!

Every week we are seeing more and more greens and to us that means one thing: fall is on the way. While the weather may not feel like it, walking around the market certainly does. This sweet spot in the growing calendar means we still have some summer crops, like eggplants and peppers, while also enjoying fall crops like potatoes and greens. Grab a bag of arugula for salads, or some mustard greens for supper, and enjoy the market bounty! Be on the lookout for more greens in the coming weeks: tat soi, bok choi, kale, swiss chard and more.

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

Thanks to Rue Chow for keeping us fed, deliciously, last week! This week we welcome La Cocinita food truck to the Green Plate Special. This week choose from Market Arepas, stuffed with chile-roasted squash, kale and black bean relish, and goat cheese (add some brisket if you want!), a variety of tasty tacos, and a side of rice and beans. Finish your lunch with a watermelon-mint agua fresca and an apple-dulce de leche bread pudding. Lunch doesn’t get much tastier!
