Farmer's Market

Our year-round farmers market has vendors from all over New Orleans, but many of our vendors are from right in our neighborhood. The ReFresh Farmer's Market isn't just about selling delicious food to people. Our market builds a community of vendors who rewrite the paradigm of how food dollars get allocated and how small food businesses can support themselves. Come visit us rain or shine and meet our amazing vendors. 

Follow us on instagram at @refreshfarmersmarket or ReFresh Farmer's Market on Facebook.
