Market Umbrella is an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3), based in New Orleans, whose mission is to cultivate the power of farmers markets to drive economic and community health in the region. Market Umbrella has operated the Crescent City Farmers Markets (CCFM) since 1995.
Welcome back to market Faust Farms! They are a third-generation family-owned business, established in 1985. Faust Farms carefully and tenderly care for their 60 acres of land in Amite, LA. They specialize in strawberries, cabbage, eggplant, cucumbers, bell peppers, and tomatoes, plus romaine lettuce and spring mix grown hydroponically! The dedication to growing high-quality produce is evident in the first bite of a strawberry or forkful of spring mix. Faust’s return to market signals a shift toward the cool-weather crop season. As it gets cooler, expect broccoli and strawberries to make their debut, alongside hydroponic lettuces grown year-round. Find Faust Farms at the Thursday Mid-City Market during the cooler months.
