Market Events for All!

Fresh & Local

Some recognize our friend Poppy Tooker's voice from WWNO’s “Louisiana Eats” while others know her face because she’s a faithful market shopper. We’re very excited to welcome her to our Saturday (11/21) and Tuesday (11/24) markets where she will be signing copies of her newest book “Tujague's Cookbook: Creole Recipes and Lore in the New Orleans Grand Tradition”. Take this opportunity to pick the mind of one of the leading historians on traditional New Orleans food and the compelling stories that accompany them.

Pick of the Week:
New Orleans Public Library!

If hanging with culinary queen Poppy Tooker doesn’t quench your thirst for market fun, come hang with the New Orleans Public Library on Tuesday. Our dear friends from the Rosa Keller branch in Broadmoor will be checking out cookbooks and sharing recipes to get you ready for Thanksgiving. Then stop by our Thursday market in Mid City to shop to the beat of the Bad Oyster Band. They’ve been playing jug band music and blues for over 30 years here in New Orleans so don’t miss out!

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

Frencheeze reminds us that we’re not too old for grilled cheese, but trust us, these aren’t your grandma’s classic melts. Complex combinations of decadent flavors fill the air whenever they come by our Tuesday market. They'll be at the market from 9am-1pm, so stop by for lunch and groceries when you get a chance! Check out their website for their full menu.

Recipe of the Week

Have you visited our friends at G&M Goat Farm recently? Each Tuesday they have an impressive array of goat cheese. Their feta is great for Greek salads and the sundried tomato goat cheese is wonderful spread on sandwiches. Go pick up your favorite goat cheese and try out this scrumptious recipe.

What’s your favorite dish to make at home from the goods you buy at our market? Share them with us and have your recipe featured in our weekly newsletter!
