Friday evenings - year-round: Market Umbrella will host a verdant farmers market featuring many produce vendors, meats, seafood, and prepared foods. Perilloux Produce (Timmy only grows big vegetables!), the Indian Springs Growers Association, a co-op comprised of over 30 member growers, and Johndale Farms with fresh Ponchatoula strawberries will all be in attendance among other fresh, local produce vendors. The market will also feature fresh shrimp, gulf-caught fish, grass-fed beef & lamb, baked goods, honey, and value-added goods.
Those hungry for dinner may sample a number of prepared food vendors, including Bua Thai, Thali Llama, and Varino’s Italian Sausage with Paella NOLA joining as a regular vendor the following week and additional rotating food vendors to follow. Additionally, menus will be available for the many neighborhood restaurant options within walking distance. Each weekly market will feature live music by local artists, such as the Bad Oyster Band at the January 4th opening. Kids’ crafts and activities ensure the whole family will have fun and enjoy this market.
