Tiny Greens

While produce has been limited at market due to the lasting effects Ida has had on our vendors’ production, you can easily find a range of fresh and nutrient-dense microgreens and sprouts available at market this fall. Know Dat Grow Dat, growing microgreens and seasonal produce right here in New Orleans, is owned by Mike Beachamp, a retired pharmacist committed to exploring growing techniques of plants to prevent diet-related illness. You can find him regularly at Tuesday and Thursday markets with a variety of prepackaged cut microgreens, as well as live ones so you can grow and cut your own. River Queen Greens, founded in 2017 and operated by Annie Moore and Cheryl Nunes, is proud to be Naturally Grown Certified and produce a rich range of produce, focusing mostly on salad greens, herbs, and microgreens. We also want to warmly welcome Sam Sprouts, a recent addition to our market microgreen team! Sam Sprouts, hailing from Covington, LA, produces an assortment of de-hulled, spin-dried, and carefully packaged sprouts, microgreens, and cold-pressed juice. Being rich in nutrients and flavor, sprouts and microgreens will make the perfect addition to your sandwiches, salads, and diet!





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.
