Crescent Fund: Hurricane Ida Relief Fund

When tragedy strikes Crescent City Farmers Market vendors and disrupts our local food system, Market Umbrella's Crescent Fund has historically operated to collect donations from market friends and supporters to provide immediate, direct relief to our vendors.

In light of the extensive damage sustained by local farms, fishing boats, and other infrastructure needed to operate these small, local food producing businesses due to Hurricane Ida, Market Umbrella has reignited the Crescent Fund. All donations made to this fund will go directly to the farmers, fishers, ranchers, and food producers of the Crescent City Farmers Market community so that they can return to market with your favorite products as soon as possible. Please, donate today!

Your gift would be an investment in the future of New Orleans local food system, getting vendors back to market so that we can continue facilitating access to fresh, nutritious food for the New Orleans community, including low-income shoppers who depend on our programs like Market Match and Market Mommas Club.

Gingerbooch Fermentables

Originally hailing from “funky Northeast Philly'', Luke Sirinides has had fermentation on the mind for years. Quarantine allowed him the time necessary to properly ferment, as the rest of the process requires only household items such as jars, pots, pans, sieves, and funnels. The star of the show is kombucha - specifically gingerbooch, Luke’s combo creation of the drink and probiotic lemonade. If you haven’t tried it out yet, come to Uptown and ask for a bottle! Sweet, gingery, and with that kombucha kick, it’s clear why this is a fan favorite. A few other varieties of probiotic lemonade are also available, like his famous Strawberry Lemonade, which has been a big hit with market staff. While he’s starting small, Luke says that kimchi, sauerkraut, and tzatziki are on the way to the table as well once he’s got some weeks at Uptown under his belt.
