Market Umbrella is an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3), based in New Orleans, whose mission is to cultivate the field of public markets for public good. Market Umbrella has operated the Crescent City Farmers Markets (CCFM) since 1995.
Josey’s Goods is run by husband and wife duo Gene and Lisa Josey. Based out of Lafayette, Josey’s offers a variety of jams, jellies, pickles, and preserves from locally grown produce. Lisa and Gene started Josey’s Goods in August of 2017. Inspired by Lisa’s cajun upbringing, Josey’s Goods allows Lisa and Gene to share their love of cajun culture through their company. They aim to teach the importance of supporting local farmers while demonstrating the high quality of food they provide. The highest compliment a shopper can give to Lisa and Gene is “just like my momma or grandma used to make”. You can find they Josey’s at our Bucktown Market every Friday - be sure to say hello!
