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.
Figue Envie is making their annual market appearance! Owners and fig farmers, Mandy and Byron met while serving in Mali as agricultural volunteers in the Peace Corp. Now the husband and wife are teachers in New Orleans, but they spend their summer vacations connecting with their farming roots. After tending to fig trees on family land since 2006, they purchased a new plot which has allowed them to quadruple their production. Figue Envie produces fresh figs, traditional fig preserves, as well as specialty flavors like Balsamic Fig Jam, Fig Pepper Jelly, and Autumn Spiced Fig Preserves. Figue Envie will only be at the market July 4th, 6th, 9th, and 11th, so be sure to stop by!
