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.
Latino Snacks joined the Thursday Mid-City market in December 2022, where they now offer a range of rich, flavor-packed Latin American snacks! Karen De Paz, Latino Snacks’ owner, wanted to combine snacks from Honduras and other countries to give New Orleans a taste of Latin America. A little over two years ago, her idea brought Latino Snacks to life! Some of the specialty snacks you can expect to find at market every week include Elote Loco (Crazy Corn), Tajadas, Mangonadas, and Honduran-style hot dogs topped with cabbage salad, jalapeños, homemade dressing, pickled onions, and more! Visit Latino Snacks’ storefront at 2317 Veterans Blvd in Kenner or come visit them at the Thursday or Sunday markets!
