The Sankofa Farmers Market was established to satisfy a need for healthy produce in New Orleans’ underserved and low income communities. It is the only open-air fresh market in the Ninth Ward area within a five-mile radius of the Treme, Seventh Ward, Faubourg Marigny, French Quarter, Gentilly and Mid-City neighborhoods. Founded in 2010, the Farmers Market continues to grow with new vendors and products.
Fruits & Vegetables, Fresh Seafood, Baked Goods, Vegetable and Herb Plants, and MUCH MORE!
We are open each and every Saturday from 10-2pm.
