The Sankofa Farmers Market is a weekly, producer-only farmers market located in the Upper Ninth Ward in New Orleans. Serving as a community anchor, its mission is to encourage healthier eating and support farmers and fishermen by providing locally grown fresh produce and seafood to residents of Greater New Orleans.

We host a diverse variety of vendors from a small urban farm located just blocks away from the market to a rural farmers cooperative in Mississippi. In addition to supporting local farmers and fishers, the market addresses the need for healthy food access in a neighborhood where there are currently no grocery stores.

The Sankofa Farmers Market accepts cash and credit, debit and EBT cards and also has farmers who accept the Farmers Market Nutrition Program coupons.

In addition, monthly special events, held on the Second Saturday of each month, feature live music performances, cooking demonstrations, the NOPL Bookmobile, and more!
