River Queen Greens is a 1/2 acre market garden growing vegetables in and for the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans. Founded in 2017 by Cheryl Nunes and Annie Moore, River Queen Greens is the result of a heartfelt and long-simmering decision to leave Massachusetts - our home of 6 years - and return to our old neighborhood in New Orleans to grow vegetables. Before coming back to New Orleans, Cheryl was managing a small vegetable farm outside of Boston and Annie was managing social enterprises throughout the region.
Now that we are finally home, we are thrilled to be able to grow year-round in a community with such a rich culinary culture, and join a burgeoning movement that's bringing locally and sustainably grown produce into New Orleans kitchens.
We use all organic practices to grow greens and other veggies for sale at local markets and to neighborhood restaurants.
