Save the Date for Moonlight Market!
On April 20th, Market Umbrella will host our first fundraising event since the pandemic: Moonlight Market! A new take on a much-loved event we hosted in the past, at this Moonlight Market we invite more than ten local New Orleans pop-ups and restaurants to create and serve one-of-a-kind dishes using fresh, local ingredients just like you'd find at market! The event occurs alongside our Thursday farmers market, where you can connect directly with local farmers, food businesses, and community organizations. We’ll also have live music, local drinks, raffle prizes, and more! Stay tuned for our event lineup and more details.
Moonlight Market is a celebration of local food, culture, and community, including the more than 75 food-producing families who bring fresh food to the Crescent City Farmers Market and help us to uplift the growing number of families we serve as we work to increase food access and improve community health across Louisiana. Celebrate with us this Spring -- click here to save the date!
The Crescent City Farmers Market operates weekly year-round throughout New Orleans. The CCFM hosts 70+ local small farmers, fishers, and food producers, and more than 150,000 shoppers annually.
