Take a break during the busy work week and join us Uptown for food and festivities at the Tuesday Market! Look for the bright tents pitched between the Mississippi River and Tulane Square (formerly known as Uptown Square), just a stone's throw from Audubon Park. Come hungry, because we've got some delicious gourmet treats simmering in the Green Plate Special tent. Mingle with local chefs and visiting school groups, and stock up on fresh, local and affordable fruits, veggies, seafood and more. We've got everything you need to create healthy, hearty meals. And you get the satisfaction of knowing that your purchases help keep Louisiana's farm and fishing traditions alive.
The Tuesday Market runs year-round, rain or shine, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the northeast corner of the Tulane Square parking lot, 200 Broadway.
The Tuesday Market is located Uptown near the Mississippi River levee at Tulane University Square (originally known Uptown Square). Find us in the northeast corner of the parking lot between Leake Avenue and Broadway Street. There's plenty of free onsite parking.
From I-10/Pontchartrain Expressway, take the South Carrollton exit. If you're coming from Metairie, the ramp will merge with South Carrollton heading toward the Mississippi River; if driving from Downtown or New Orleans East, turn left at the first traffic signal (Palmetto Street) then right at South Carrollton. Go 2.2 miles to the end of South Carrollton and turn left on Leake Avenue. With the levee on your right, continue 0.8 miles; the Market will be in the parking lot to your left, just before Leake meets Broadway.
