The Crescent City Farmers Market
opens its French Market location
next Wednesday, Oct. 15, with more than 20 vendors in the first shed located between Ursulines Avenue and Gov. Nicholls Street.
The addition of a Wednesday market brings a fourth operating day to the Farmers Market, which currently operates Saturdays on Magazine and Julia Streets in the CBD, Tuesdays at Uptown Square and Thursdays at the American Can Company in Mid City.
The Wednesday market will feature fresh produce, flowers, seafood, meats, cheeses and other specialty items from local farms and chefs. It will run from 2 to 6 p.m. with a chef demonstration and live music each week. For its inaugural day, the market will host Ben Thibodeaux of Tableau
, who will base an entire dish solely on what he finds at the market that day. The band The Little Things
is on tap to play music.
It's satsuma season, and if there's a better reason to go to the farmers market, I haven't heard of it. As with all the other markets, SNAP and credit/debit cards are welcome.
