Celebrating 20 years of the Crescent City Farmers Market!

Fresh & Local

Save the date! We’re gearing up for our annual fundraiser, our Moonlight Market, on Saturday, October 10th. It's sure to be a great time, featuring some of New Orleans’ finest restaurants, garden-to-glass cocktails, local beer, live music by King James & the Special Men and a silent auction. This year will be all the more special as we raise our glasses to the 20th anniversary of the CCFM and to the legacy of Mr. Boatner Reily III. The mural-lined Reily Foods Company parking lot at Magazine and Girod Streets has been home to the CCFM for the last 20 years. Join us as we raise our glasses to the vision of Boatner Reily III and CCFM co-founders Richard McCarthy IV, Sharon Litwin, and John Abajian, and celebrate 20 years of bringing fresh, local food home to New Orleans! Click here for more information on our Moonlight Market and to purchase tickets today.

Recipe of the Week

We’re so thrilled to see the greens slowly make their return to market as the Fall continues its approach to New Orleans. They’re small in number now so be sure to get to market early to get some for yourself. The Monicas have been bringing some beautiful collard greens the past few markets. If you’re lucky enough to pick some up for yourself, why not try this Collard Wrap recipe out?
