Market Perks for our Friends of the CCFM!

Fresh & Local

Check a loved one off your gift list and support the market you love most! By becoming a Friend of the CCFM or gifting it to a pal, you help our non-profit bring our region’s best producers to the Crescent City. On top of that, you’ll be able to take advantage of our market perks which are offered each third week of the month (wait a sec, that’s this week!). In previous months, you could get $1 off garden-fresh pesto from Paul Arceneaux or a two for one special on Ms. Clara Gerica’s stuffed crabs. Oh, the joys of friendship!

He’ll be sharing his new book The Essential Louisiana Cookbook, a stunning collection of 50 traditional (and some non-traditional) Louisiana recipes. Stop by the Saturday market to enjoy some music and to pick up a copy of this perfect gift for a Louisiana food lover.

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

La Cocinita is pulling up to market this Tuesday morning so get your forks ready. Vendors and shoppers alike can’t resist the tender meats, flavor-packed sauces, and traditional Latin flavors.
