River Queen Greens
River Queen Greens is back at the Thursday market! Come on by our Mid-City market and shop with Cheryl Nunes and Annie Moore, the farmers behind River Queen Greens! Starting in 2017, River Queen Greens began providing New Orleans with Certified Naturally Grown seasonal produce and microgreens from their 1/2 acre market garden in the Bywater. Since then, they have moved to a new growing site in Lower Coast Algiers on New Orleans' West Bank. Ten miles downriver from downtown New Orleans and across the street from the Mississippi River levee, their expanded location juxtaposes small-scale agriculture with global industry. In addition to their weekly set up at our market, they offer a choice-based farm-share veggie box that you can pick up from Press Street Gardens in the Bywater/Marigny on Tuesday evenings! Just like at the market, SNAP and Market Match are accepted! Find River Queen Greens’ table of fresh veggies every week at our Thursday market!
River Queen Greens have farm shares available! Go to their website to order a subscription or one-time farm share and then pick it up at a selected location. Home delivery coming soon!
