Happy Tuesday w/Pre-Mardi Gras Fun with Veggies and Music!

Happy Tuesday!

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 Chef Lisa Barbato  will be there the whole month of February to preview her soon to open café, Rivista. Look for it on Magazine Street in March. Until then, enjoy Lisa's themed lunches all month long! This week, Lisa is taking us on a trip to Jerusalem with spiced goat casserole with eggplant and sweet potatoes; chickpea soup with homemade pita; roasted cauliflower and hazelnut salad with pomegranate; spicy beet, leek and walnut salad with arugula; and for dessert, orange almond syrup cake and honey-pecan fingers....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
