Have a holly jolly holiday!

Fresh & Local

Every family has a different holiday food tradition, and we embrace them all at the Crescent City Farmers Market. We have eggs for eggnog, loads of greens for side dishes, and plenty of pies for dessert! Hosting a Feast of the Seven Fishes? Our seafood vendors can help you out. Planning to serve tamales? Isabel has you covered! Be sure to shop early because our Saturday market will be closed Christmas Eve so vendors can spend time with their families.
