River Queen Greens started as a 1/2 acre market garden growing vegetables in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans. It has since expanded to include a new growing site across the Mississippi. In 2017, founders Cheryl Nunes and Annie Moore made a heartfelt and long-simmering decision to leave Massachusetts - their home of 6 years - and return to their 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.
They 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.
