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 the Market welcomes Anne Churchill. This week she'll warm your bones with kale and lentil soup with Meyer lemon; wild boar curry or red curry tofu with coconut rice and mung bean salad; goat cheese and caramelized onion tarts; and raw kale salad with carrot, hemp and chia seeds, dulce and pecan vinaigrette. Top it all off with a slice of southern brown sugar cake with Shaker Meyer lemon custard.....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. They also have home delivery if you can't make it to the Market - Click here to find out how - http://www.hollygrovemarket.com/content/5669
