Happy Carnival!

Fresh & Local

You’ve made it through the weekend and Fat Tuesday is just around the corner. You’re losing steam and your inner nutritional coach has been nagging you all weekend. Enjoy Mardi Gras, but once Lent rolls around, we know you’ll be back to market! We’ll be closed on Tuesday, but be sure to pay us a visit to stock up on healthy choices: salad greens, citrus, root vegetables, strawberries, juice, tomatoes, and so much more.

Pick of the Week: Seafood!

What are you giving up for Lent? Many people choose to take a breather from meat, but seafood is still on the menu! We’ll have a bounty of shrimp, catfish, seabrim, and more at market. You won’t miss meat when you’re buying the best of the best at the Crescent City Farmers Market.

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

Chef Matthew Kopfler from L’enfant Terrible doesn’t mess around when it comes to his veggies. He accentuates flavors by letting the market-fresh produce shine through his dishes without clouding them with overly-complex preparations. Find him exploring all four markets for the perfect ingredients that will end up on your plate next Tuesday!
