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.
Amorphous Gardens joins us at the Tuesday Uptown market all the way from Farmhaven, MS. On his 16-acre farm, Jonathan, along with his wife and three children, emphasizes sustainable and natural growing practices. He avoids synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and doesn’t use plastic mulch, which is a common cover crop on conventional farms. In addition to his witty remarks and sense of humor, Jonathan brings all kinds of unique produce to the market. Right now you can buy gorgeous carrots, heirloom turnips, and, of course, yacon at his table.
