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.

Fresh and Local

Pick of the WeekThe CCFM Box

Fresh and local food delivered right to your door? Sign me up! Crescent City Farmers Market has partnered with Top Box Foods and the Refresh Farmers Market to provide you with healthy, local, and affordable food delivered to your home twice a week. Ordering a CCFM box will support our farmers and producers while making sure your family is nourished and safe. Not only will you be able to continue to support our vendors, but having your groceries delivered ensures greater social distancing.

So how does it work? The $40 CCFM box is currently offered twice weekly and you can order online at Top Box. New boxes are available for order on Tuesdays (for Friday/Saturday delivery) and Saturdays (for Tuesday/Wednesday delivery). Supplies are limited and they’ve been flying off the shelf so follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) for updates on when sales launch. When you get your box, tag us in a pic of all the great dishes you make with it - we love to see the fruits and veggies in action!

Boxes also qualify for purchase through our Market Match program for SNAP benefit users, doubling your buying power and cutting the price in half. Choose “pay at pickup” and Top Box will contact you directly to process your SNAP payment and to receive your dollar for dollar match.

Check out the Top Box site for more information on the current delivery radius which includes Orleans Parish and parts of Jefferson Parish. And if you miss out on the CCFM box or need one of a different size, Top Box also has additional box options that support local growers and producers that can be delivered right to your door as well!

Picks of the Week

Pick of the WeekNew Orleans Food Policy Advisory Committee

During this time of uncertainty, we know that access to fresh healthy food is of utmost importance for all. With job loss, travel restrictions and school closures, knowing how and where to access food is a challenge. We hope to alleviate some of that worry by keeping the community informed of where to access food during this crisis. For a multitude of Covid 19 resources visit nolafoodpolicy.org/covid-19
