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.
The New Orleans-based company Pickled NOLA LLC specializes in delicious homemade pickles. Jeremy Oatis, the founder of Pickled NOLA, is a teacher, a Mardi Gras Indian, and a serious pickler. He first started making pickles four years ago to use up a surplus of home-grown cucumbers! Two years later, with the encouragement of friends and family, Pickled NOLA was born. Since then, Jeremy and Kimberly Oatis have expanded the offerings of Pickled NOLA to include an array of seasonal and locally-sourced pickled vegetables, including dill cucumber pickles, pickled green beans, and pickled garlic. Pickled NOLA provides a fresh, natural alternative to store-bought pickled products. Stop by the Pickled NOLA table at the Sunday City Park market or check out their website: they’re a big dill!
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.
