Bring Home Some Spring with CCFM!

Fresh & Local

Mark your calendars now for an event-packed market Tuesday May 5, 2015! With special tastings, prizes, cuddly animals, and more we are celebrating GiveNOLA Day at CCFM. Proceeds from this campaign will support market operations and our kids programming. While making your groceries at market, you can also donate in person and receive special market treats! We know you love the great produce, seafood, meat and dairy available at the CCFM and Give Nola Day is a great time to show it because your donation will be matched by the Greater New Orleans Foundation. We can’t wait to see you at market Tuesday May 5, 2015!

Pick of the Week: Market Music!

We’re excited to welcome the fantastic globe-trotting Balcony Players joining us at market this Saturday from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. for two hours of fantastic Klezmer market music. Be sure to come out and enjoy the performance with us!

Spring Pantry Cleaning with CCFM!

All month long at Tuesday’s Uptown market we’re hosting a food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank, so come on out to market, make some new groceries, and bring the old non-perishable ones with you. Nutritional foods low in sodium and sugar are ideal, but every food donation matters, so bring what you can. Thanks!
