CRESCENT CITY CLASSIC THIS SATURDAY
The Crescent City Classic will be running through the streets of New Orleans this Saturday, April 19th at 8 a.m. All of Poydras will be closed on race day, so if you normally come down Magazine st. from Poydras or Canal st., you’ll need to reroute. The best route will be taking the Ponchatrain Expressway to the Carondalet/St. Charles Ave. exit, then follow Calliope to Camp st. Take a left onto Camp and then a right on Girod, and you’ll find us running market as usual at 700 Magazine St. on the corner of Magazine and Girod. It should be a great day at market filled with beautiful Spring produce and live music so be sure to plan accordingly and come on out!
Wake up to the best of the season's harvest every Saturday morning, when the Crescent City Farmers Market takes up residence in New Orleans' historic Warehouse District! Look for the handsome Dafford Brothers mural at the William B. Reily Company parking lot: that's where you'll find the best in fresh, locally grown produce, seafood, baked goods and much more. Come for the food, and stick around for great entertainment by local musicians, cooking demonstrations, or just to shoot the breeze with friends and the farmers, chefs and fishers who put food on the city's tables.
The Saturday Market runs year-round from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at the corner of Magazine Street and Girod Street. If it rains, look for us inside the big building adjacent to the parking lot.
