Crescent City Farmers Market

CCFM is a food only, producer only market and features locally grown produce, fish and seafood, meat, dairy, bread, and sundries since 1995. Our many programs focus on fresh food access and include accepting SNAP and market match where SNAP dollars are doubled, the fruit and vegetable prescription program, and WIC and senior incentives.

WHAT YOU DO

Service learning students will learn the ins and outs of setting up and/or breaking down a farmers market (situating 30-40 vendors, setting up or breaking down temporary public spaces and the welcome tent). A special project over the course of the semester is also our availability calendar where a student will take an inventory of produce items available at each market to create a public calendar of seasonality.,

WHAT YOU LEARN

A student at CCFM will learn about seasonality, growing methods, produce varieties, meet farmers and learn what it takes to grow and bring food to eaters.
