Crescent City Farmers' Market


Fresh Find: Organic oranges, sastsumas, and kumquats

On the Market: "I wait all year long for peaches and watermelons. I buy from growers in Chilton County, Alabama, who bring them in from right on the border of Mississippi and Alabama. As a chef, I want to develop a relationship with these farmers. For example, I purchase blue crab for my restaurants from a local fisherman at the market because I know he is working in an area with really safe and clean water." —Baruch Rabasa, executive chef of Mesón 923 in New Orleans
