Happy Holiday Tuesday w/Veggies, Cocktails for Pets, and Christmas 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 strawberry glazed pork skins, green salad with kumquats and pinenut brittle, marinated shrimp with farro and winter squash, roasted pork sandwiches with provolone and rapini greens, and cannoli with truffle honey and candied pecans. 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
