pick of the week

Duck Eggs

Rich in antioxidants, filled with essential vitamins and minerals, and with a deliciously fatty (and big!) yolk--it’s no doubt that duck eggs are the way to go in the new year. Duck eggs are a protein-packed snack you can enjoy with toast, over rice, or with a plain and simple hard boil. Snag a carton at the market through Tomott’s Cajun Farm and from Silly Dilly Animal Sanctuary via the VEGGI Farm Co-op!

Parkway Bakery & Tavern

Big thanks to Parkway Bakery and Tavern who has graciously provided us space to hold our original Drive Thru Market since the start of the pandemic. The Crescent City Farmers Market could not have made it through without the generosity and patience of the Parkway team. Their commitment to the city of New Orleans and local food knows no bounds. We’re still neighbors on Thursdays so come on down and enjoy a Parkway poboy and get your groceries at the CCFM Mid-City market!

Vendor of the Week:

Terrence Travis

It’s a family affair. Terrence Travis, nephew to Mr. Byron (Travis), proud papa and Indian Springs Farmers Association member is usually a regular vendor at markets but during the pandemic has turned his focus from selling at markets to aggregating for co-op members and making multiple deliveries to the New Orleans area every week. When you order the CCFM home delivery box, you’re likely getting something from Terrance, or you can find his produce at the SPROUT NOLA Truck Farm table on Sundays!

Recipes of the Week:

Easy Strawberry Cookies

Strawberry season is in full effect, y’all! And we see you, low-key hoarding those half-flats each week. We know this queen of berries is especially delicious fresh and straight from the pint and transformed into ruby-hued jam but here in the height of strawberry season you might be hankering for a new berry good recipe. Keeping it simple and streamlined, An Italian in My Kitchen offers up this easy strawberry cookie recipe. So simple, in fact, the kiddos could give it a whirl the week whilst they’re home on Mardi Gras break!
