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.
We’re excited to warmly welcome BrickWall Farms back to our markets this fall! BrickWall Farms has been bringing hydroponic lettuce, herbs, and spices to the Crescent City Farmers Market for more than eight years now! Owned and operated by Brian Bricker, BrickWall Farms has been running as a hydroponic farm since 2011. What is hydroponic farming you may ask? Hydroponic farming is a growing technique that doesn't involve soil or sunlight and instead relies on nutrient-rich water. Hydroponic farming has increasingly become a popular means of growing food as this practice uses far less space and resources compared to traditional farming practices. Brian is currently growing arugula, basil, catnip, bok choy, and 11 different types of lettuces! Come on by our markets to try out BrickWall Farm’s fresh selection of lettuces that will make the perfect addition to your salads, sandwiches, and soups.
Call or email for orders. We will accept large orders of 24 heads or more, delivery fees apply.
Location: Pass Christian, MS
Products: Hydroponic lettuce, frissé, and greens
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.
