Satsumas are here!

This beautiful weather we’ve been having is no lie; Fall really is here! And you know what that means: It’s time for Satsumas! We’re so excited that STAR Nursery will be kicking off the season with us this Tuesday at our Uptown market. Be sure to come on out and grab yourself a bag and maybe even one of our ‘I Live For Satsuma Season’ t-shirts!

How the time does fly?

Twenty years really does go by so fast. If you haven’t had a chance yet, check out this fantastic interview our co-founder Sharon Litwin did with one of our founding farmers, Ben Burkett, as they reminisce on the past 20 years of the Crescent City Farmers Market. Hear the interview here.
