About Us / The Marketplace at Armstrong Park History: In partnership with the Historic Faubourg Treme Association, Institute of Community Development, the New Orleans Police Justice Foundation, North Rampart Community Center, North Rampart Main Street, Inc., and Treme Bridge Marketplace, Covenant House New Orleans (CHNO) is pleased to announce the launch of the Covenant Farms Marketplace at Armstrong Park. Covenant Farms, a new social enterprise program for community youth focusing on agriculture and urban farming, will be selling its own fruits and vegetables at the first-ever Marketplace at Armstrong Park this Friday, July 9th. Approximately 10 vendors will be selling prepared meals, seafood, soaps and more.\n\nCovenant Farms is working with local professionals within the food and urban farming industry to create a start-to-finish program in which the kids will clear land, plant produce, tend to and harvest product, learn cooking processes for food, in addition to marketing and selling the product. The youth are also building all of the boxes the food is planted in, the fencing and other necessities for the gardens—most of which is being done with donated or recycled and reused materials.\n\nMarket Hours: Friday, 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
