Southern Living’s 2012 Foodways Hero of the South: Crescent City Farmers Market Founder and Director

My old boss and ongoing collaborator on farmers markets theory and practice, Richard McCarthy has been honored with the Southern Living 2012 Foodways Hero of the South award. The runner up was the equally brilliant Poppy Tooker. Both are intimately involved with food system work in the South, throughout North America and across the globe. The Crescent City Farmers Markets are the fulcrum of the social justice movement in New Orleans and the two have been the most instrumental people in the scope of that work.
Congrats to them both.
