Greaux the Good
Good for Farmers, Good for Families.
Greaux the Good gives Louisiana direct-to-consumer food purveyors (such as farmers, farmers markets, farm stands, and CSA boxes) the opportunity to create or expand a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) nutrition incentive program.
Greaux the Good provides food producers administrative and financial support to both accept and incentivize purchases made with SNAP/EBT or FMNP. Nutrition incentive programs attract high-need shoppers to local foodways and empowers them to purchase more fresh foods directly from local producers. This mutual exchange between farmers and the community positively impacts the state's agricultural economy and increases local food access.
Farmers markets and other eligible entities interested in being a Market Match partner with Greaux the Good should complete the interest form to begin the process. To learn more about the program and current partners, click here to visit Greaux the Good’s website.
November 10 until March 9, Thursday Market is operating within its Winter Hours of 3-6 pm to accommodate the end of Daylight Saving.
The Crescent City Farmers Market operates weekly year-round throughout New Orleans. The CCFM hosts nearly 60 local small farmers, fishers, and food producers, and more than 150,000 shoppers annually.
