Tony Accardo, the self-proclaimed Jimi Hendrix of farming, will be back at market through the spring and summer!

The Accardos farm on the rich, well-draining soil only found in St. James Parish, where the robust, fruity perique tobacco is famously grown. Louisiana Gourmet Produce specializes in heirloom varieties of tomatoes, hot peppers, root vegetables, and more. We look forward to Tony Accardo returning to CCFM with his unique, highly-sought-after produce!
