Welcome back SPROUT to Thursday market! More than a market vendor, SPROUT NOLA works tirelessly to support established and developing urban farmers in the community. Providing technical and social support to build a stronger, more equipped community of growers here in New Orleans, SPROUT’s unique Truck Farm Table serves as an entry to markets for small-scale farmers and producers to sell their goods and retain their profits. Managed by Erica Sage (who you may recognize from Tuesday market as the urban farmer and business owner of Petit Jardin), the Truck Farm Table provides shared rent and table space to small producers who might not have the volume of product to fill a whole market stall or finances to foot the whole bill or have enough time on hand to attend markets, thereby reducing barriers to entering the market. Their Truck Farm Table is often the fist step for growers hoping to scale up, and SPROUT supports the development of small and/or new producers to graduate to their own vendor stall within the CCFM markets and on to CSAs or wholesale to our restaurant shoppers or local distributors. The small growers of today are tomorrow’s anchor produce vendors. Together, SPROUT and CCFM are helping to support small growers and create a pipeline to success! Find SPROUT at market every Thursday, with products and produce from VEGGI Farmers Co-Op, River Queen Greens, Petit Jardin & Momma D’s Preserves.
