It is a project initiated by Sankofa Community Development Corporation to support economic development within the area through local farming and agriculture.
At this time, produce/products in demand include:
The Sankofa Farmers Market is the only open-air fresh food market located in the Ninth Ward area of New Orleans, and is in close proximity to the Treme, Seventh Ward, Faubourg Marigny, French Quarter, Gentilly, and Mid-City neighborhoods.
Founded in 2010, the Farmers Market continues to grow and currently generates an average of 300 customers weekly.
Farmers, fishers, and food producers travel from various parts of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region to sell their products. Items currently sold include seasonal fruits and vegetables, an assortment of baked breads and bagels, whole pastured chickens, eggs, hot pepper jelly, wild-caught Louisiana shrimp, herbs, vegetable starter plants, ornamental cut flowers, and an array of local delicious eats.
