Farm to Pantry

The Best Farmer's Markets & Co-Ops in New Orleans



There are an endless number of reasons to buy local, especially in the Big Easy. The food tastes better and is higher in nutrients since produce has to travel a much shorter distance from the ground to your family’s table. Local food is also GMO-free, a quality many people now strive for in their food. Buying local-farmed produce also supports local farming families, helps build community, and preserves open space — which can quite the commodity around here. In New Orleans, locals are fortunate to have an array of famer’s markets and co-ops, all of which work closely with local growers and producers to bring the best they have to offer.

Check out the list below of the best (and tastiest) ways to support our local economy.

  

Crescent City Farmers Market

One may find themselves becoming overwhelmed trying to schedule all their market visits on the weekend, but don’t fret. The Crescent City Farmers is open four days out of the week in four different parts of town, so no matter where you are, you can get your locally grown goodies. Come mingle with local chefs and partake in some delicious food while you stock up on locally grown produce and have some fun. 

Tuesday: Uptown at 200 Broadway Street at the River, 9AM-1PM

Wednesday: French Quarter at 1235 N. Peters Street in the French Market, 1 PM-5 PM

Thursday: Mid-City at 3700 Orleans Avenue at the Bayou, 3 PM-7 PM

 Saturday: Downtown at 750 Carondelet Street at Julia Street, 8 AM-12PM

 

Artisan Saturday Market

This is a somewhat recent addition to the farmer’s market scene here in the city. Visitors and locals alike will be sure to find what they’re looking for at this special gathering of local growers and producers. Come and check out the bounty of New Orleans produce, fresh seafood, preserves, freshly baked bread, and so much more. 

The Saturday Market is located in the French Market every Saturday from 10 AM-2PM, approximately

 

Hollygrove Farmers Market

Serving as a cornerstone for many local produce lovers, the Hollygrove Famer’s Market is open seven days a week and offers a weekly produce box for those that would like to purchase it or become a member for $95 a year. Benefits include 10% off all purchases, a Party in the Garden gala ticket, and more. Their garden space and farm are integral to providing underserved neighborhoods with fresh, sustainable goods, as well as passing on those sustainable practices to visitors interested.

Hollygrove farmer’s market is located at 8301 Olive St and the market’s hours are 10 A.M. – 6 P.M., Monday-Friday and 9 A.M. – 5 P.M. on weekends.

 

Vietnamese Farmers Market

If you’re an early riser, and want one of the most authentic farmer’s market experiences in the area, this one is definitely for you. Located in the Versailles neighborhood, coming to this market is a bit like stepping outside of the city entirely, as you enter one of the most densely concentrated Vietnamese communities in the country. This fact in itself makes this market unique, with many Vietnamese elders present in tradition conical headwear known as non la. Stock up herbs, fruit and some unique vegetables you might not be able to find elsewhere. This market can be found around Alcee Fortier Boulevard, just look for the cluster of parked cars and listen for the sound of roosters crowing. 

The market takes place around 14401 Alcee Fortier Boulevard and runs 6 A.M. – 8:30 A.M., approximately

 

VEGGIE Farmer’s Co-op

Dedicated to bring the highest quality produce, seafood and more to the Greater New Orleans Area, VEGGIE was created out of necessity in response to the BP oil spill on the Vietnamese community. Many jobs were lost and sustainable economic opportunities in urban farming presented themselves. The produce is grown naturally without the use of chemical pesticides, using in ground farming as well as aquaponics. Presently, those interested are able to order produce online, as well as arrange for delivery. Although the co-op doesn’t host their own events, a ton of VEGGIE’s produce can be located at the aforementioned Vietnamese Farmer’s Market and possibly at the Crescent City Farmer’s market as well.

 

New Orleans Food Co-op

On a mission to provide healthy food at a fair price, this co-op is quite dedicated in all areas of its production, to their unwavering support of the local economy, to their targeted use of minimally packaged goods, to the presence of Fair-Trade goods whenever possible. This co-op defines locally grown as being produced within 250 miles of the city, and categorizes their products in 3 categories being: Locally Grown, Locally Produced, and Crescent’s Pride (grown/produced specifically in New Orleans).  Membership information and more can be found at the link above.

The co-op is located inside the New Orleans Healing Center at 2372 St. Claude Ave, Ste 110, with their hours being listed as 8 AM to 10 PM
