Everybody's dancing at the Moonlight (Market)...

Fresh & Local

Our annual fundraiser, Moonlight Market, is this Saturday, October 8th! Bring your appetite and dancing shoes because the evening will be one for the books. There will be 25+ of the best bars and restaurants in town, music by the Brass-A-Holics, and a silent auction with coveted items. Most importantly, we’ll be honoring our beloved founder Sharon Litwin by unveiling a new token.

You can purchase tickets online here, by calling (504) 861-4485, or at any Crescent City Farmers Market. Patron party tickets are $150 or $75 for patrons under 35 years old. Main event tickets are $45 in advance (until 10/6) and $60 at the door.

Pick of the Week:
Bonnecaze is back!

After many long weeks in the wake of the August 2016 flooding, the wonderful Stacy Bonnecaze is back at the market! Thanks to the generosity of our Crescent Fund donors, Stacy is able to return with her delectable grits, cornmeal, pepper jellies, and more. Welcome her back to the CCFM when you see her!

Happy satsuma season!

Give a cheer, citrus is here! Our growers have patiently been waiting for their crops to ripen to bring the freshest and sweetest product to the market. It was worth the wait!
