It’s easy to let the indulgence of Mardi Gras get the best of your nutritious intentions. We have a few ways to keep the party enjoyable - while still healthy.
1) Plan ahead. If you’re going to be at the parades all day, prepare a healthy and nutritious tailgate recipe. We like this vegan jambalaya creation.
2) Pack snacks. Healthy snacks like hummus and veggies are perfect for the parade route. Strawberries and citrus are also easy to transport.
3) Hydrate! Make sure to drink plenty of water. It’s so important!
4) Be safe and have fun!
Two of our markets will have limited hours to accommodate vendors and shoppers during Mardi Gras. This Saturday, February 25th, we will end our market one hour early, and our Tuesday Market will be closed on Fat Tuesday.
Taco Tuesdays are back at the Tuesday Crescent City Farmers Market. Abita Fresh is serving up vegan and meat tacos from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Learn more about Abita Fresh by visiting their website.
Another Mardi Gras favorite is Shrimp Creole! Get your local shrimp from our markets and prepare this delicious recipe for your krewe.
