Hope everyone is okay, back on the electrical grid (and if not I hope ya'll get the power today).
I really can't eat another can of Chef Boyardee, so let's go shopping for some fresh veggies today!
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 am to 1:00 pm for the freshest veggies, fruits and seafood. Today for the Green Plate Special they welcome New Orleans' first and only solar-electric food truck, Empanada Intifada. Look forward to empanadas and all kinds of delicious South American favorites......Yum!
And if you want more fresh veggies head on over to the Hollygrove Market. You can go by their location at 8301 Olive Street between Noon and 6:00 pm, and they have a new pick-up location and from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at Rosa F. Keller Community Center (4300 Broad @ Napoleon Ave.). On most Tuesdays they're cookin' up all these delicious fruits and veggies in the Community Center Kitchen. So come in for a taste, and great recipe ideas for all this delicious fresh food. In order to pick up from the library location you need to pre-order.
