Crescent City Farmers Market to temporarily close starting March 19

Beginning on March 19, 2020, the Crescent City Farmers Market will cease market operations until further notice to minimize any risk to shoppers and vendors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While we feel that we have instituted many safety precautions at market since the onset of this crisis, the safest measure at this time is extreme social distancing. Rest assured that in the meantime, Market Umbrella staff will be working diligently behind the scenes to develop ways to continue to support our vendors as well as our communities’ vulnerable populations. We will use this time to explore innovative options such as ways to create a virtual market place. This has been a very difficult decision but the health and wellness of our community is our top priority.

Crescent City Farmers Market has partnered with Top Box Foods to create boxes full of CCFM vendor products for home delivery on Tuesdays and Fridays. Boxes are available at Top Box Foods.

Please check back regularly for updates as we work to organize additional methods for food distribution.

Greener Pastures

We are just thrilled to welcome to the Saturday CBD market Greener Pastures! Hailing from Singer, LA, Greener Pastures is filling a void at market for pasture-raised chicken, raised without hormones or antibiotics. Contrary to popular belief, chickens are not vegetarian, and Greener Pasture’s birds spend their time out in the field in the grass with plenty of access to yummy bugs. Jonathan and Kelsye Cassell (pictured here with their chicks) have been in the chicken business for the last three years, and are coming to market weekly with fresh, whole Cornish Cross chickens and chicken cuts, including boneless skinless chicken breasts, wings, quarters, tenders, ground meat and more. Hopefully, you got your hands on one of their broad-breasted white turkeys for Thanksgiving, part of a limited run they’ve been bringing to market the last few weeks. They’re considering adding turkey production year-round, so swing by and let them know if that’s something you’d be interested in. We certainly are!
