We’re jammin’

Fresh & Local

We’re jammin’ at the Crescent City Farmers Markets! You’ll find lots of varieties of jams and jellies at our markets. Vendors use locally sourced preserves to create delicious products to spread over your toast or bagel!

Jamboree Jams is the latest vendor to enter the Thursday market in Mid-City. They are a small-batch jam company that uses seasonal locally grown fruit to create their product. You can find all types of varieties of their jams at the Thursday market, 3700 Orleans Avenue from 3-7pm! You can also find jams and jellies from Country Girl Creamery, J&D Blueberry Farm, Bonnecaze Farm, Poche Family Farm, and Blue Terra.
