You’ll find some of the biggest cauliflowers you’ve ever seen at the Crescent City Farmers Market. Pick one up and turn it into delicious and healthy “grits” topped with a mirliton and shrimp saute. Thanks FitNOLA for this yummy recipe!
This Tuesday, December 6th is National Gazpacho Day! In celebration of the holiday and strawberries back at the market, we’re treating you to this strawberry gazpacho recipe. Enjoy!
Our Director of Markets tried this recipe and loved it so much she wanted to share it with you. Take advantage of cauliflower back at the market and give it a shot!
It’s mirliton season! This week we’re stuffing mirlitons with Gulf Coast shrimp and Louisiana crabmeat using a recipe from our friends at Broussard’s. Add this dish to your Thanksgiving menu and your guests will surely be delighted.
This week’s recipe is courtesy of a CCFM shopper! Instagram user @tineshealthylife used ingredients all found at the market to create a delicious dinner. While she chose to use catfish, the recipe can be adapted for drum, chicken, or even steak!
One pot, thirty minutes, and a healthy and delicious meal is made! Kale, sweet potatoes, and other ingredients that can be bought from the Crescent City Farmers Market construct this recipe.
Broccoli is in season, so stir fries are a natural fit for dinner! We shopped the market and used VEGGI Farmers Cooperative tofu with broccoli to make a healthy and family-friendly meal.
It’s always fun talking vendors and discovering their favorite produce recipes. This week we learned Lucy Capdeboscq’s favorite way to cook mustard greens. Simply saute the greens with olive oil and garlic, and add in salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes! You’ll create a healthy and tasty way to enjoy your greens.
The combination of sweet potatoes and kale tastes like autumn to us! Add shrimp and garlic to this recipe for a quick and tasty family-friendly meal. Looking to spice it up? Head over to Spicy Lady for any seasoning you could desire.
Not only is this recipe delicious, but nearly every ingredient can be purchased from our markets. It's been tested by our Director of Markets Angelina Harrison, and she approves!
