Seasonal Recipes

Seasonal Recipes for Summer 

These recipes were developed as part of our partnership with community partners, the Crescent City Farmer’s Market, and the Krewe of Red Beans Feed the Second Line initiative. They were designed to celebrate the season, using produce available locally in Louisiana. We are developing new recipes weekly for the Crescent City Farmer’s Market local produce boxes available for purchase through Top Box Foods New Orleans. The boxes can be delivered to your door and SNAP benefits can be applied. These recipes have also been included in the local produce boxes being donated to elder New Orleans culture bearers through the Krewe of Red Beans Feed the Second Line initiative. Please visit the links above for more information on these programs. Our hope is to provide our community with some extra inspiration for using the local produce that is abundant in Louisiana through the summer: 

Cantaloupe Green Smoothie

Tomato and Cucumber Salsa

Summer Squash Ribbon Salad

Roasted Sweet Potato Hummus
