December 2008

Are you a Buyers’ Club member that wants to see how things work “behind the scenes”? Or maybe you are new to the market and just want to help out? Either way, we are looking for you!

We are looking for two volunteers to help us; one to help with set-up and stocking of produce throughout distribution, and another to work the lagniappe (extra and speciality produce available for individual sale) table.  The hours are from 8:30am-2:30pm every Saturday, and though we are flexible when it comes to hours, we are really looking for folks who can be at the market at 8:30am. We can’t send you home with any money, but we will gladly send you home with lots of fruits and veggies!

If you’d like more information, please email me at!


This week’s newsletter is up and ready for reading! Just follow this link to download issue 3.

If you have some extra moments at your desk today, check out the great segment on last week’s (December 26th) episode of Steppin’ Out in which food columnist and activist Poppy Tooker gives Hollygrove Market & Farm, and New Orleans Food & Farm Network’s new Executive Director, Daphne Derven, a glowing review. Check out the segment here, and let us know what you think!

If you visited the store this Saturday to pick up a produce box chances are you sampled two amazing soups and coleslaw made by Ashley Locklear, our farmer coordinator. Both soups use items in your box this week, and will make a great addition to your holiday menu.

As a reminder, we will not be holding distribution on Saturday, December 27th. We will be back on Saturday, January 3rd, though. It’s not too early to reserve a box!

Many of our Buyers’ Club members have asked the staff about the best way to cook the mustard greens that have been in our produce boxes lately—-sure, you can saute them down like you would collards, or other winter greens, but one of our members, Farah, kindly sent me a copy of a recipe she tried (and loved!)
