Beat the heat!

Fresh & Local

The heat is on, people. This is not a drill. As you wipe away sweat at high noon, take solace in the fact that humans aren’t the only ones reacting to this hot weather. Humidity and long days kick the fields into high gear, so come see the bounty of our farmers’ hard work. Blueberries, peaches, and strawberries sweeten the heat while crispy veggies cool us down. Find something new at this week’s market and be sure to share it with us on instagram!

Music at market has been in full swing! Nothing is quite as New Orleanian as listening to live music while deciding what’s for dinner. At the Crescent City Farmers Market, we love to support our local producers of music and food. Want to play at the Crescent City Farmers Market?

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special:
Carrollton Market

If you’ve shopped at the Crescent City Farmers Market, you know Chef Jason Goodenough. His commitment to local sourcing brings him to the frontlines of the New Orleans food scene each week at the farmers market. His restaurant, Carrollton Market, is a phenomenal show of talent, finesse, and appreciation for the food grown by our very own CCFM farmers.

recipe of the week

Recipe of the Week:
Spicy Pickled Green Beans

Don’t let the market’s abundance overwhelm you. Harness that energy and can it! Get to pickling so that your fridge will be stocked all year long. We found this great recipe on, but you can get creative by adding farmers market ingredients. If you need to stock your kitchen with spices, stop by the Tuesday or Wednesday market and pay Spicy Lady a visit.
