St Joseph’s Day Festivities!

Fresh & Local

This Wednesday we’ll be celebrating St Joseph’s Day early at our Wednesday Farmers Market in the historic French Market. This is a great chance to learn about New Orleans’ strong Sicilian heritage which helped shape our farming and culinary culture. Chat with one of our generational Sicilian farmers Tony Accardo, check out the Portera Sisters mini-altar, hear Rosanna Giacona’s talk on Sicilians in New Orleans, and listen to some live tunes a la Karl Kummerle. See you in the French Quarter!

Pick of the Week: Henry Mauthe!

If you’ve ever been to our Thursday market at the American Can Company, you know Mr. Henry Mauthe. He’s a charming man with a sharp sense of humor. We’ve missed him these past couple months, but he’s coming back this week with his primo dairy products, ranging from freshly bottled milk to handcrafted cheesecakes. Stop by this Thursday to welcome Mr. Henry back!

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

Lahpet heard your hungry cries and they’ve answered! After two weeks of selling out, they’re bringing more Burmese delights to please your palate. They’ll have plenty traditional flavors of Burma including a fermented tea leaf salad, a tangy papaya salad, fresh coconut water, and tender meat skewers. We’re happy to have the great food and people of Lahpet join us each Tuesday of March.
