Louisiana Gourmet Produce
Tony Accardo, the self-proclaimed Jimi Hendrix of farming, will be back at market through the spring and summer! Tony Accardo comes from a long line of farmers in Grand Point, Louisiana, representing Louisiana Gourmet Produce. The Accardos farm on the rich, well-draining soil only found in St. James Parish, where the robust, fruity perique tobacco is famously grown. Louisiana Gourmet Produce specializes in heirloom varieties of tomatoes, hot peppers, root vegetables, and more. We look forward to Tony Accardo returning to CCFM with his unique, highly-sought-after produce! While they may not be at market every week, we’ll let you know when he is; check our market posts on Instagram and Facebook and the weekly vendor lineup on our website.
