What does summer taste like?

Fresh & Local

Join us this Saturday for the first ever Marketeers’ Taste of Summer scavenger hunt. There will be face painting, prizes for the kids and lots of summer fun! If your kids are not in the Marketeers’ Club, not to worry: you can sign up at the Welcome Tent. We will also be unveiling the 2013 token, which honors CCFM farmer Jim Core, who passed away last August.

Pick of the Week: Bell Peppers!

Bell peppers are a cornerstone of our local cuisine, and right now the Crescent City Farmers Market is bursting with them. Stuff them, roast them, dice them for your gumbo – whatever you do with them, there is nothing like the taste of farm fresh bell peppers.

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

Join us for the final Tuesday of Taceaux Loceaux’s Green Plate Special month. Come out for creatively named taceaux such as the Seoul Man (bulgolgi chicken), Jane Deaux (braised greens) and Messin’ with Texas (brisket). Worried about finding them after June? Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for up to the minute location information!

Recipe of the Week

Make Jeannie Fonseca your first stop at the Tuesday Market for the Louisiana crawfish tails you'll need for this Crawfish Kowalski. Then pick up a pack of smoked sausage from Isabel Mendez, butter from Progress Milk Barn, cream from Rocking R Dairy and a bunch of green onions from one of our produce farmers. What a great local Tuesday (or any other night) dinner!
