Vendors

Black Agricultural Vendors

Indian Springs Farmers Association (ISFA) - Indian Springs Farmers Association (ISFA) is a joint venture of 30+ small Black-owned farms from Mississippi that collaborate in growing and distributing their produce. First formed in 1976 to help African American farmers sell vegetables to a wider market, ISFA has become a long-time vendor with CCFM, bringing a rich array of in-season veggies to market each week. This time of year you’ll see a lot of greens and sweet potatoes at their table! Additionally, ISFA is often featured in the CCFM home delivery box during this time of year. Learn more about the cooperative’s organizer and revered Mississippi farmer, Ben Burkett, along with the history of the ISFA cooperative in this video.

Know Dat Grow Dat - Mike Beauchamp of Know Dat Grow Dat is a firm believer that we are what we eat! After 44 years in the pharmaceutical industry, Mike shifted his focus towards growing microgreens to educate and encourage people to take more control over their own nutrition. While gardening at Hollygrove Market and Farm, Mr. Michael Beauchamp and Mr. Nelson Richardson connected and became business partners. Out of this, Know Dat Grow Dat was born!

Know Dat Grow Dat is an urban garden that produces flowers and microgreens using sustainable growing techniques. Filled with flavor and vitamins, microgreens enhance any meal! Mr. Mike is also a member of Delgado's Big Band, where he hones his saxophone skills on alto and baritone saxes, and the Farm Service Agency County Committee for Urban Agriculture, where he serves as an elected official. Find Know Dat Grow Dat on Instagram and at the Tuesday Uptown and Thursday Mid-City markets.

Petit Jardin - Meet Erica Sage of Petit Jardin. Erica offers a selection of naturally grown vegetables and fruits harvested from a small sustainable plot of land in Central City that first began as a space for her to grow food for her growing family. Honoring quality over quantity, Petit Jardin additionally produces small-batch, hand-curated goods such as spicy pickled vegetables, moringa powder, soaps, dried herbs, dehydrated citrus, and edible flowers. Petit Jardin is black-owned, woman-owned, mom-owned, and operates on the belief that small impactful shifts in what we put on and in our bodies will imbue positive effects physically, mentally, and spiritually both individually and as a collective.
