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 La Divina Gelateria. This week they'll have squash-Parmeggiano soup, Siciliano sandwiches with slow roasted pork, ham, fontina and pickled squash, sides of rosemary roasted potatoes, and small plates of creamy polenta topped with your choice of roast beef or sauteed squash with smoked tomato sauce......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.
