Fresh Item of the Week
Tuesday Market, March 27, 2012 | 9 am - 1 pm
The first day of Spring came and went March 20th bringing the beginning of early spring vegetables and the tapering off of winter crops. We're seeing spicy spring onions, sweet green garlic, tender young fava beans, plus plenty of sweet potatoes, cabbage, carrots and greens. Take advantage of this intersection of winter and spring crops to get your fill of the local bounty.
Thursday Market, March 29, 2012 | 3 pm - 7 pm
Clara and Chris Gerica of Pete & Clara's Seafood have been loading us up with fresh caught local seafood in our Crescent City Supported Fisheries shares. Last week the share for Thursday market pick-up was 2 lbs of whole shrimp and a half pound for fresh drum fillets. The Gerica family still has plenty of seafood available for those not participating in our Lenten CSF. Stop by our Thursday market to get the very freshest catch for Friday lenten suppers.
Saturday Market, March 31, 2012 | 8 am - 12 noon
Get your weekend off to a delicious start by visiting our Saturday market for everything from fresh cut flowers to pastured meats to locally made preserves, breads and seasonal fruits and vegetables. We're there rain or shine. Our Saturday market is extra special because we have the option to set up inside the adjacent garage in inclement weather. Spring brings showers, so keep this in mind if you drive by the corner of Magazine and Girod on a Saturday morning and we seem to be missing. We're just inside!
Recipe of the Week
It's fava bean season! This simple, delicious Fava Beans & Shrimp dish is ideal for Friday Lenten meals or any springtime lunch or dinner. Pick up a few pounds of Louisiana shrimp and fresh favas at the market this week.
