Green Plate Special

Check out our weekly Green Plate Special at the Tuesday Market. Each month we invite a local chef to be our chef-in-residence. They dream up fresh, affordable plate lunches that showcase the local, seasonal ingredients available at the CCFM. Meet a friend for lunch, or pick up dinner & take a night off from cooking. The city's top chefs shop at the Market. Each month, they also take turns cooking there too.

July 22nd

Chef Goodenough and crew of Carrollton Market have been on a roll the past few weeks with their market fresh lunch menus. For all those who have had a chance to try their fare and are hungry for more, stop by their restaurant at 8132 Hampson St. in the Riverbend. They’re open Tuesday-Sunday for dinner, from 5-10pm; keep an eye peeled for some of your favorite CCFM farmers and their produce on the menu!

July 15th

Carrollton Market has been wowing us each week with their market fresh lunch dishes. Did you know that each week Chef Jason comes with an idea of what to cook, but is inspired by what is fresh that Tuesday and builds his menu around that? We love seeing the menus he puts together each week and love eating them even more. Join us for lunch this week and experience for yourself.

July 8th

Carrollton Market knocked it out of the park on their first day as our Green Plate Special. The BLT with creole tomatoes, baby arugula and roasted garlic aoli was outstanding, as was the delicious crabmeat sandwich. Be sure to come check them out this Tuesday to see what new lunch items they’ll be serving up!

July 1st

Green Plate Special fans, we’re all in for a treat this month. The new Riverbend restaurant, Carollton Market, will be joining us as July’s GPS vendors! Recently opened in March of this year, Carrollton Market serves up modern Southern cuisine every Tuesday to Saturday from 5-10pm out of their charming 8132 Hampson St. location. Chef Jason Goodenough and crew have a great looking menu for us this Tuesday, consisting of Tomato Salad with Rockin’ ‘R’ Feta, Creole Tomato Salad with cucumber and crabmeat, sandwiches featuring Bellgarde bread, and some sweet desert options as well. It’s bound to be a good month, so come on out and grab a plate with Carrollton Market!
