This month, VEGGI will be returning to the Crescent City Farmers Market on Thursday afternoons at the American Can Company. We haven’t had a stand at the market since June because of the heat, which restricted our crop varieties and harvest.
But now that the season is changing, we are seeing a lot of beautiful colors on our farm, with lots of veggies growing bountifully again. Because of this, we look to be back at the farmers market and hope to see all of you there.
We will have our usual salad mixes, tofu, soy milk, radish, turnips, beets, herbs, eggplant, etc. and we still collaborate with SUA to bring you great products grown in the lower 9th as well.
What’s new this season is that our youth led Food Justice Collective will have some of their produce for sale as well. They’ve grown eggplant and okra, and have their own reusable grocery bag that you can purchase right here on our website and pick up at the market (we’re working on being able to sell the bags at the market as well).
We started our CSA delivery program this summer as well, and a presence at the farmers market, we’ll be able to use the site as a pickup spot for anyone who orders our box. You can also order a box at the market if you’d like.
We’re excited to get back to the market and be able to connect with our customers directly. Please follow us on twitter @veggifarmcoop to know which day we will be there and in case we take a day off.
