We Love Satsuma Season

Fresh & Local:

Sure, Dennis and the Monica’s have held us over with their small baskets of scrumptious early satsumas the last few weeks, but the wait is over - citrus season has officially begun, folks! Returning to the market this week are two of our infamous citrus vendors, Star Nursery and L’Hoste Family Farm. We have caught wind of some good stuff coming our way including navel oranges and lemons! Citrus is great in and on everything - fish, salad, sweets, a little acidity in your pico, and a zing on your chicken. Hold on to your margaritas y’all, this is only the beginning!

We are pleased to welcome to the Tuesday market Two Dog Farms!

They’ll be staples at the uptown market March through December, winter depending, so come on out and check out some beautiful new produce!

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special:
La Monita Pop Up

Last week to catch La Monita at the market. Simple, delicious Colombian inspired food made from locally sourced ingredients. Arepas, plantains, tropical fruits and everything in between inspired by a monita’s (Colombian slang for blond girl) culinary journey through the amazing country. Catch them around New Orleans, popping up at awesome local businesses, like CCFM. Check them out here!
