Double your dollars

Fresh & Local

We believe farmers markets should benefit farmers, shoppers and the wider community. That’s why through our Market Match program, we offer incentives for consumers to eat more fresh, local produce and help stretch the dollar.

Market Match is super cool and really easy. All you have to do is show up to any Crescent City Farmers Market with your Louisiana Purchase card, and we’ll match your dollars up to $20! That means that $20 can really mean $40 worth of healthy food.

Pick of the Week:

In emergencies, CPR can be the difference between life and death. That’s why the American Heart Association is coming to our Tuesday market to teach and demonstrate how to perform CPR. You can’t be certified in that short period of time, but you can watch how it’s done. Come by between 9:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. Tuesday.

Goat milk

New product alert! Morris Richardson will have goat milk kefir at the Tuesday market. Now you ask, what is goat milk kefir? Well, it is a cultured milk product similar to buttermilk and yogurt that is made from kefir grains. It becomes a silky smooth drink that is slightly thicker than milk but thinner than yogurt. You can pour it on cereal or use it to make smoothies and ice cream!
