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.

Mid-City, Thursday Market

Mid-City Crescent City Farmers MarketNext Market: Temporarily Closed
3 pm to 7 pm

American Can Company

3700 Orleans Ave. at the Bayou

As many of you will remember, in 2002, local farmers, fishermen, and food artisans gathered in the parking lot of the American Can Co. for the first time to sell their products to crowds of hungry New Orleanians. The market, run by the Crescent City Farmers Market, became a popular community meeting place, as well as a bustling center of commerce. When the CCFM regrouped after Hurricane Katrina, one of the casualties was this much-loved Thursday evening market.

In the spring of 2008, thanks to Cork & Bottle proprietor Jon Smith’s steadfast commitment to his community and the dedication of a core group of market vendors, the Mid-City Green Market opened in the same space. Now, the market has returned to the CCFM family with the hope that this will ensure its future growth and development for residents and neighbors in Mid-City.

The Thursday Market runs year-round from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Orleans Avenue and Bayou St. John, in the parking lot of the American Can Co..
