Meet Amanda and Nick, the self-proclaimed crazy geniuses of Buttery Spell! Buttery Spell was started in August 2020 during the height of the pandemic. While Amanda was home attempting to stay sane in the midst of all the stress and craziness, their very first nut butter, Milk Chocolate Pecan, was born. A year later, the compounds were introduced! The first compound butter made was Shrimp Butter, and it’s still around to this day. While it doesn’t have shrimp in it, it’s amazing on shrimp. Buttery Spell makes their gourmet nut and compound butters with love and intent, intentionally utilizing fresh ingredients and amazing flavor profiles with the goal of waking up your taste buds! Catch Buttery Spell at a Thursday or Sunday market and grab yourself something special!
The Crescent City Farmers Market operates weekly year-round throughout New Orleans. The CCFM hosts 70+ local small farmers, fishers, and food producers, and more than 150,000 shoppers annually.
