Louisiana Gourmet Produce

The self-proclaimed Jimi Hendrix of farming is back at the market! Tony Accardo comes from a long family line of farmers in Grand Point, Louisiana, representing Louisiana Gourmet Produce. The Accardos farm on rich perique soil only found in St. James Parish, where the robust, fruity perique tobacco is grown, specializing in heirloom varieties of tomatoes, hot peppers, root vegetables, and more. Mr. Tony is having his best growing season in recent history and it shows - you can find beautiful radish, colorful carrots, ghostly pumpkins, and all sorts of rare finds, like purple broccoli, at markets now. Stop by the Tuesday Uptown and Thursday Mid-City market to meet Tony and the youngest Accardo, Kyle (pictured), and see for yourself. Purple Brussels sprouts coming soon!
