Crescent City Farmers Market highlights

One of the most important aspects of the Crescent City Farmers Market is its commitment to fresh and local food. Unlike many farmers markets, this market is focused solely on food with very few exceptions made for crafts and other items, though you'll still find non-food plants available like flowers.

Their commitment to fresh and local food extends to prepared meals as well. The ingredients in prepared meals offered at this market must be locally sourced and reflect the local region and culture in addition to meeting legal safety requirements, of course.
