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. Last week, Anne kept us warm and happy with her roasted ginger and carrot soup, and satiated our collective sweet tooth with Ponchatoula strawberry shortcake. We can't wait to see what she has to offer this week! A little birdie told us to expect lamb shwarma. Visit the Green Plate Special tent this Tuesday to get your fill of Anne's healthy, hearty fare...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
