Join us this Weekend for the Moonlight Market!

Fresh & Local

The time has finally come! Our Moonlight Market fundraiser is this Saturday night, and we can’t wait! There will be food from 20 of our favorite CCFM supporting restaurants, drinks from local brewers and distillers, live music from the Levee Toppers and a silent auction with items ranging from a week stay in Watercolor, FL, to dinner for 8 people prepared in your home by Chef Alex Harrell of Sylvain, to a month of unlimited yoga classes at Reyn Studio. If you support the work the CCFM does, we’d love to see you out to celebrate, eat and drink with us Saturday night. To purchase tickets, please click the banner below.

Pick of the Week: Citrus is Here!

That’s right folks, citrus has finally arrived, and not a moment too soon with this week looking like the last one for apples. While you may have seen citrus starting to come into grocery stores around town a couple weeks ago, our growers have been patiently awaiting for their crops to ripen to bring only the sweetest fruit to market shoppers. We’re so excited to have Star Nursery joining us at all three markets this week with their delicious satusmas, and to have L’Hoste Citrus come in next week with their organic citrus crops. Be sure to come say hello and grab a bag of this fall’s first market citrus!

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

We’re so glad to have La Cocinita back to market this month as our Green Plate Special vendors for the month of October! You’ve probably seen this red food tuck around town, or at our Thursday market where you can find them most weeks, dishing up fresh, gourmet Latin American cuisine. From tacos to arepas, you can expect to find La Cocinita dishing up authentic Latin Ameircan dishes all month long at our Tuesday market from 9-1pm. Be sure to come on out and grab a plate!

This looks like it’s going to be the last week with apples so why not stock up on a couple bags, one to eat raw and one to cook with? Check out this Apple Beignet recipe (which is one of our favorites!) and enjoy the last batch of Fall apples in a sweet way!
