Market Umbrella is an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3), based in New Orleans, whose mission is to cultivate the power of farmers markets to drive economic and community health in the region. Market Umbrella has operated the Crescent City Farmers Markets (CCFM) since 1995.
Thursday Market is operating within its regular hours of 3pm to 7 pm to accommodate the return of Daylight Saving.
Paella NOLA fills the air at our Thursday Mid-City market with the mouth-watering aroma of paella, a classic yet versatile saffron rice dish originating from Spain. Paella NOLA prepares this dish on-site, bringing a Louisiana twist to paella by using fresh Gulf seafood, locally-made sausage, a hand-ground spice mix, and many other regional ingredients. Jacob and his cousin Nate began Paella NOLA in 2018, joined CCFM as a Green Plate Special vendor in 2019, and now bring their delicious cooking to market every Thursday! When not at market, Paella NOLA serves paella at festivals and private events. Check out Paella NOLA on Instagram and make sure to give their delectable dishes a try!

The Crescent City Farmers Market operates weekly year-round throughout New Orleans. The CCFM hosts 70+ local small farmers, fishers, and food producers, and more than 150,000 shoppers annually.
