Crescent City Farmers Market to temporarily close starting March 19

Beginning on March 19, 2020, the Crescent City Farmers Market will cease market operations until further notice to minimize any risk to shoppers and vendors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While we feel that we have instituted many safety precautions at market since the onset of this crisis, the safest measure at this time is extreme social distancing. Rest assured that in the meantime, Market Umbrella staff will be working diligently behind the scenes to develop ways to continue to support our vendors as well as our communities’ vulnerable populations. We will use this time to explore innovative options such as ways to create a virtual market place. This has been a very difficult decision but the health and wellness of our community is our top priority.

Crescent City Farmers Market has partnered with Top Box Foods to create boxes full of CCFM vendor products for home delivery on Tuesdays/Wednesdays and Fridays/Saturdays. Boxes are available at Top Box Foods. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to see when sales are launched.

Please check back regularly for updates as we work to organize additional methods for food distribution.

We need you! We couldn't pull off our weekly farmers markets without an army of volunteers. Moreover, we're always on the lookout for new recruits. If you share our love of local food and vibrant public spaces, we'd love to hear from you.

Our volunteers come from many walks of life: market shoppers, dedicated foodies, students, professionals, chefs and restaurant staff, neighborhood activists and others who want to share their talents and time by helping Market Umbrella strengthen and sustain the local food economy.

Volunteers help with setup and breakdown, work at the Welcome Tent distributing information and beverages, play music, and assist with kids activities. We also dispatch volunteers to events around town, and enlist their help with school and community events hosted by our Meet Me at the Market program. They also contribute to the policy decision-making process through our Community Advisory Team and work on many other tasks vital to our effort to build a strong regional food community.
