Fresh Item of the Week

fresh item of the week

Ready for some lighter fare after the Thanksgiving feast? There is nothing better than local vegetables to help you forget the turkey coma of last week! Come by any of our weekly markets to see what is available at the height of the fall season. Bell peppers, sweet potatoes, kale and collards, green onions and broccoli are just a few of the offerings from our growers. Eating lighter between parties helps us keep our energy level up and bellies happy!

Justin Pitts makes his return to the Tuesday market with his grassfed beef and pork. Come find him across from the Monica's just in time for holiday gatherings. Also, have you noticed the growing number of school children at the market recently? We're doing our Meet Me at the Market educational program again with scavenger hunts and satsuma tastings. We love having the next generation of good eaters with us at market. Their smiling faces as they discover new foods are a delight to behold!

Mid-City New Orleans | 3700 Orleans Avenue at the Bayou

We're sure you've been hearing about “Night Markets.” They're all the rage right now in cities across the country. Here in the Crescent City, we had a night market before they were a our Thursday evening market! With the tables all lit up, it certainly does feel festive right now at market. Don’t let the dark keep you away. Come out and make groceries after work until 7pm. Grab a glass of wine at Clever or a cup of hot cocoa at PJ’s and make grocery shopping an event!

Saturday Market, November 26, 2011 | 8 am - 12 noon

Downtown New Orleans | 700 Magazine Street at Girod

With all of the holiday cooking you'll be doing, this is the perfect time to make sure your knives are sharp and ready for the heavy lifting. Arthur Jones is your answer to dull knives and sore shoulders. Bring your knives to him, do your shopping and pick them back up ready to prepare your next feast. This is also a great gift for the chef in your family!

Recipe of the Week

With all of the eating last week, we're ready for something a little lighter. Use some of the herbs in the garden or fridge for this delicious Herb Salad.
