Please support the restaurant chefs who regularly shop with the farmers and fishers of the Crescent City Farmers Market.
We are often asked by shoppers "Who was that chef walking away with boxes of fresh greens or organic satsumas?" While we recognize the various means by which regional fruits, vegetables, dairy, seafood and meats make their way onto local restaurant menus, we are especially pleased to recommend the restaurants whose chefs go out of their way to purchase directly from farmers and fishers and do so alongside the rest of us — at the Crescent City Farmers Market — and who name the farmers and fishers on their menus:
If for some reason we've inadvertently left you out, we're so sorry. We can fix that quickly. Please email us.
