A Tuesday w/Veggies, Art and Beer, plus Holiday Fun!

Happy Tuesday Everybody!

Farmer's Market!

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 Amano. This week they'll have marinated beets with toasted pecans and local citrus, cavatelli with roasted carrots, carrot green pesto and Pecorino, goat and pork sausage with winter squash and an agrodolce sauce, and a dessert of rosemary panna cotta with satsuma marmalade. Come grab a plate!

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.  So click here to find out how - http://www.hollygrovemarket.com/content/5669
