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.

Too Tall Farm and Nursery

A warm welcome to Too Tall Farm & Nursery! Married team Maggie and Jacob have been cultivating a variety of flora in their greenhouse and garden space for the past five years, a rich history of farming, landscaping, and nursery and non-profit work behind them. The farm is currently located in the ninth ward and claims the title of Certified Naturally Grown, meaning no GMO seeds, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and always organic approved materials when possible. Too Tall believes that familiarity with plants in both personal and public ways only enriches one’s life, and they’re not wrong. Greenspaces like community gardens strengthen community ties, improve air quality, grant access to nutritious food, and increase biodiversity in local wildlife. A fan favorite plant among both customers and Jacob and Maggie is the Roselle Hibiscus, both beautiful and beneficial as it can be brewed into a lovely tea. Too Tall Farm will be joining the lineup at our Thursday and Sunday markets.
