F2_8 Farmers Markets of New Orleans
Organizer: Allison Brown, Tuscarora International & Angelina Harrison, Market Umbrella
More and better farmers markets were a response of Pennsylvania to Hurricane Agnes in 1972 and in New Orleans followed Hurricane Katrina in 2005. As in Pennsylvania, before Katrina there were markets but after Katrina they got better.
Led by staff from Market Umbrella, we go first to Perilloux Produce, a family farm and argitourism destination. Then on to Veggi Farmers Co-Op, started by Vietnamese farmers who came to the region following the Vietnam war. Finally to Crescent City Farmers Market at French Market where you can have lunch on your own and then walk back to the conference.
