Bellegarde is back at market!

Fresh & Local

Our dear friend Graison Gill, the man behind Bellegarde Bakery, has returned to the Saturday market with his awe-inspiring array of bread. Be sure to get a loaf (or two) and ask about his upcoming classes where you can learn his artisan techniques from grain to oven. Learn why his methods produce unrivaled bread then try it out for yourself after he equips you with all the necessary knowledge. Ask about discounted rates for industry folk and market shoppers.

Pick of the Week: Handmade Moments!

The Crescent City Farmers Market has been blessed with fantastic music this past week by a travelling trio by the name of Handmade Moments. Catch them one last time at our Tuesday market before they hit the road again. Then be sure to say hey to our friends in The Bad Oyster Band at the Saturday 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 this Tuesday!
