Katrina wiped it out.
Back in 2004, the French Market hosted farmers and growers who’d brought their goods to town to sell to the city folks.
Then Katrina lashed out and New Orleans reeled.
Nine years later, the folks behind the Crescent City Farmer’s Market have announced plans to bring the farmers back beginning in October of this year.
Kathryn Parker, executive director of Market Umbrella/Crescent City Farmers Market will lead the charge.
