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.
