This week across the city, New Orleanians are struggling with an anniversary fraught with both despair and renewal. For the months leading up to this week, many news outlets, organizations and individuals have been thinking of the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. We have too. Our minds hark back to the first Tuesday market that reopened in November 2005. (You can view it here. I promise it has a happy ending).
As Christine Monica is heard asking one of our founders, Richard McCarthy III, in the video, “Did you ever think you would see us again?”
Thank you for coming to see us again and again as a member of our market community. We are grateful you are here and look forward to many more markets together. Please stop by our flagship location at Magazine and Girod this Saturday, August 29 to have a cup of cold-brewed iced CDM coffee or Luzianne iced tea on us and enjoy your usual community of fellow market shoppers and vendors. We are here for you.
Our beloved bread making duo from our Wednesday and Thursday markets, Challah at Me, are moving to North Carolina and we’re pretty sad about it. While we’ll certainly miss them and their great products, we’re excited to give an opportunity to another bread baking business here in the New Orleans area. If you or someone you know is making delicious bread and looking to become a vendor at our markets, please refer to the vendor interest form on our website and drop us a line! We’ll be taking applications for the next couple of weeks. Happy baking!
This is La Cocinita’s last Tuesday with us as our Green Plate this month! Come on out and fill up on a hearty breakfast of arepas and tacos while you make some groceries tomorrow. Stay tuned for delicious market fare from L’Enfant Terrible next month!
