You can get your day started off right with a trip to the Farmer's Market!!!  Visit the Crescent City's Farmer's Market at University Square (200 Broadway) from 9:00 to 1:00 pm and pick up some fresh seafood, veggies and you can even get some lunch...be sure to check out the green plate special from Surrey's Cafe & Juice Bar and La Playa..check out the menu:  sopa de vida (gazpacho with fresh Lake Salvador jumbo lump crab, sopa de aguacate (cold avocado and yogurt soup), shrimp ceviche with tomatoes and chiles, puerco en adobo soft tacos, pollo con salsa rojas soft tacos, veggie tacos with portobello mushrooms, onions, red and yellow bell peppers, zucchini and crook neck squash, and for the hungriest market shoppers, a plate lunch- choice of two tacos (all available in corn or flour tortillas) with black beans, Mexican rice, guacamole and chips..now that sounds delicious!!
