Market Umbrella is an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3), based in New Orleans, whose mission is to cultivate the field of public markets for public good. Market Umbrella has operated the Crescent City Farmers Markets (CCFM) since 1995.
Leo’s bread, a popular vendor at our Uptown, Bywater, and Downtown markets, is now at Bucktown! Leo’s bread is run by Kate Heller. Kate first learned the art of baking in a small town in Maine and began by baking loaves of bread and pizzas for fun at home. She opened a bakery in Lompoc, California before moving to New Orleans in 2014. She brought her love of baking here, and we are so happy she did! Kate has expanded from selling at one of our markets to four, and can also be found at her Mid-City pizza restaurant, Echo’s.
Find Kate at market with focaccia, bagels, donuts, and fresh-baked whole loaves. You don’t want to miss out on her bread!
The Crescent City Farmers Market operates weekly year-round in four New Orleans neighborhoods. The CCFM hosts nearly 80 local small farmers, fishers and food producers, and more than 100,000 shoppers annually.
