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.
Things ’n Stuff
With the addition of the Rivertown Farmers Market to the CCFM family came the addition of several great new vendors to our network that we’ll highlight here over the next few weeks. Things ‘n Stuff sells 40+ varieties of jams, jellies and preserves, made from local produce whenever possible which allows some great specialties like mayhaw jelly and a crawfish boil pepper jelly. Garlic jelly may sound like an odd combination of savory and sweet, but is surprisingly addictive and pickles and salsas are fresh and delicious. Arts and crafts are also allowed at the Rivertown Farmers Market to a limited extent and another endeavor of Things ‘n Stuff falls into this category. Here you’ll find quilted bowl cozies, which you nestle a bowl into and protects your hands from hot microwave dishes. You’ll also find quilted casserole covers, tortilla warmers and a variety of other items, in a wide variety of fabrics. Custom orders are welcome. Find them every Saturday at the Rivertown Farmers Market from 9-1.
