Fresh Item of the Week
Tuesday Market, December 13, 2011 | 9 am - 1 pm
Ponchatoula strawberries are back! We're thrilled to have Heather Robertson from Johndale Farms back at both our Tuesday and Saturday markets (and coming soon to our Thursday market). Come by and get an early taste of Spring. With Louisiana strawberries and citrus now in season, our holiday tables are overflowing with sweet, beautiful, local fruit.
Thursday Market, December 15, 2011 | 3 pm - 7 pm
Have you seen A&K Citrus at our Thursday market? In addition to beautiful citrus, they also have mirlitons! Stuffed mirlitons and mirliton casserole say holiday side dish like nothing else in Louisiana. Whether they're an old family favorite, or you have yet to try them, pick up some "alligator pears" this week and start experimenting. Trust us. You won't be sorry.
Saturday Market, December 10, 2011 | 8 am - 12 noon
You've been asking for them and here they are... Inglewood is back with pecans, and eggs, just in time for holiday baking. Inglewood is the first Louisiana pecan grower to employ an organic system, and is working towards certification in 2013. Read more about their efforts here. Also, one more big thank you to Chef John Besh and his team for coming out to sign copies of his newest cookbook, My Family Table, last week. If you missed Chef Besh out at the market, pick up a copy at your favorite local independent book store.
