Crescent Fund: Hurricane Ida Relief Fund

When tragedy strikes Crescent City Farmers Market vendors and disrupts our local food system, Market Umbrella's Crescent Fund has historically operated to collect donations from market friends and supporters to provide immediate, direct relief to our vendors.

In light of the extensive damage sustained by local farms, fishing boats, and other infrastructure needed to operate these small, local food producing businesses due to Hurricane Ida, Market Umbrella has reignited the Crescent Fund. All donations made to this fund will go directly to the farmers, fishers, ranchers, and food producers of the Crescent City Farmers Market community so that they can return to market with your favorite products as soon as possible. Please, donate today!

Your gift would be an investment in the future of New Orleans local food system, getting vendors back to market so that we can continue facilitating access to fresh, nutritious food for the New Orleans community, including low-income shoppers who depend on our programs like Market Match and Market Mommas Club.

How to Preorder with SNAP

Shop with SNAP!

For SNAP pre-order purchases, shoppers should complete this form after creating a customer account for SNAP verification. Please allow one to two business days for verification processing. Once approved, you’ll have the option at the end of your online transaction to select pay at pick up with SNAP. Each dollar of your purchase will be matched with an additional dollar for fresh produce or food bearing plants. As long as at least half your order is for produce, your cart total will be reduced by half. After completing the purchase online, market staff will apply Market Match and contact SNAP customers the day before market with the revised total of the transaction using the provided phone number. Payment will then be collected upon market day at order pickup.

Market Umbrella’s Market Match program matches SNAP purchases dollar for dollar so don’t forget to add those fruits, veggies, and food bearing plant starts to the cart! Market Umbrella will match $1 for every $1 spent using a SNAP card at Crescent City Farmers Markets or on home delivery boxes to buy more fresh fruits and veggies! Traditionally, Market Umbrella has matched up to $20 per market visit, but in recognition of the urgent food access need that the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated in our community and in celebration of a recently awarded Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program grant from the U. S. Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture, there will be no match limits through December 31, 2021.
