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.

Know Dat Grow Dat

Mike Beauchamp, owner, and operator of Know Dat Grow Dat, knows that good health starts with what we eat. As a retired pharmacist, Mike wanted to promote disease reduction and help people have longer, healthier lives. He chose to specialize in microgreens because they’re packed with concentrated nutrients and aromatic flavors. He started using the raised beds at Hollygrove Market & Farm to grow produce using organic techniques. Since then, Know Dat Grow Dat now offers microgreens at our Ochsner and Bucktown markets, as well as ReFresh Farmer’s Market on Mondays in Midcity. These impressive little greens pack a nutritious punch and can spice up any salad or sandwich! In addition to cultivating microgreens, Mike is a talented saxophonist and enjoys cultivating community around eating good food.

Know Dat Grow Dat is available to make deliveries and product is available for pickup as well. They can be reached via phone, email, or direct message. Check Instagram regularly for updates about product available for delivery. In addition to cash, they accept square card and other forms of non-cash payment.
