The Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans has not had a supermarket for over thirty years.

After the levee failures which devastated the neighborhood, Greta Gladney of the Renaissance Project moved forward and actualized a project that she’d been working on for three years: bringing a farmer’s market to this underserved neighboorhood.

This video by Documentary New Orleans features interviews with Gladney, customers of the new farmer’s market, and suppliers. Leanora Tisdale of the Downtown Neighborhood Consortium is the Farmers Market manager.
