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. This month the Market welcomes Cafe' Hope to the GPS tent for April! They have outdone themselves with this Tuesday’s menu! Can't wait to try the oyster and tomato soup, the sweet potato biscuit and pork belly slider and the strawberry & beet salad. Bring your appetite, and finish it all off with their sweet-sounding fresh strawberry tart....yum!!!
