We have some exciting news to share! Thursday, January 14, 2010, the Crescent City Farmers Market will ring the opening bell at its former Mid-City market location.
On Tuesdays throughout the spring and summer, the Crescent City Farmers Market played host to kids from many area schools and summer camps. During the spring, school field trips featured a presentation on Louisiana strawberries. Summer brings children from summer camps in the public school system. These visits highlight tomatoes, one of our biggest crops of the summer season.
Market Umbrella is an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3), based in New Orleans, whose mission is to cultivate the field of public markets for public good. Market Umbrella has operated the Crescent City Farmers Markets (CCFM) since 1995.
