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.
Market is made all-the-sweeter with B&G Foods in the lineup. Slices of cake swirled with icing and glossy strawberries on a tart are only the lovely beginning of what Breanna and Gerardo have to offer. Bre went to culinary school at eighteen, the blood of a butcher and restaurateur in her veins. She set out to be her own boss, starting Fletcher’s a few years ago. The fiancés met at a kitchen in Hammond, good food a common theme in both their lives. Gerardo grew up eating flavorful, home-cooked Honduran food and has worked in the restaurant industry for about ten years. Their cakes are a feast for the eyes alone, but Bre surprisingly has only recently gotten into the frosting business. She loves her custom-order cakes as they give her the space to be creative and bring her customer’s visions to life. Find them now at the Tuesday Uptown market. After one bite, we’re confident you won’t have to remind yourself to keep checking back - these new vendors have big plans for their menu!
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.
