Ready to know the new Saturday location?

Help our farmers affected by the August 2016 Floods

If you were at market Saturday, you may have missed some of your favorite vendors like Lucy Capdebosq and Heather Robertson. Or you noticed that Isabel was without produce and selling only tamales and breakfast burritos. That’s because several of our vendors’ fields were flooded by extreme rains. Some have had water in their homes and others have lost all of their crops.

Donate now to the August 2016 Louisiana Floods Rapid Response Crescent Fund to help your Crescent City Farmers Market vendors get back on their feet.
