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.
