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.
Casa Borrega is back at market! Owner, artist, and Mexico City native, Hugo Montero, first joined the CCFM community years back as a Green Plate Special chef. Now, you can find Hugo & his son Yves cooking up Mexican breakfast tacos at every Sunday and Tuesday morning market. When not at market, Hugo is serving up dinner at their taqueria & mezcaleria in Central City. Having grown up regularly shopping at outdoor markets in Mexico City, Hugo is ecstatic to join the CCFM community and feel reconnected to his origins and culture.
The Crescent City Farmers Market operates weekly year-round throughout New Orleans. The CCFM hosts 70+ local small farmers, fishers, and food producers, and more than 150,000 shoppers annually.
