Call for Farmers!
Regional farmers, backyard growers, and farming cooperatives are invited to apply for Farmers Market vendor opportunities!
The Sankofa Farmers Market is seeking farmers to host regular vendor booths every Saturday from 10am to 2pm. The Farmers Market offers regional farmers, fishers, and food producers a weekly venue to sell their produce and serves as a community anchor, providing residents with access to local, fresh food. 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:
asparagus, bananas, blackberries, corn, cheese, eggs (all types), figs, fresh juice, garlic, gluten-free products, leeks, lettuce, live crabs, live crawfish, meats, milk, nuts, oats, olives, peppers, pastries, raw foods, southern peas, summer squash, tomatoes, vegan products, wild-caught Louisiana shrimp, yogurt
The Sankofa Farmers Market is the only open-air 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.
If you are a farmer, fisher, or food producer interested in becoming a vendor at the Sankofa Farmers Market, please visit our website at to submit a vendor interest form and review the vendor rules and regulations.
