Jazz Fest Fuel!

Fresh & Local

The first weekend of Jazz Fest came and went, and you’re probably tuckered out from shaking your groove thang. That means it’s time to refuel with fresh produce grown in the same soil that gave us The Meters, Irma Thomas, and more. Be proud of our legendary roots, both musical and agricultural! So grab a handful of green beans, munch ‘em as you stroll up to the Fairgrounds, and keep on boogying.
