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 Taceaux Loceaux to the Green Plate Special tent for May! We love the tasty tacos and side items they serve from the side of their colorful food truck. This Tuesday choose from their Messin' with Texas brisket taco, Delta Prawn shrimp taco, Jane Deaux greens taco, or a delicious Sopa de Fresa Colombian strawberry soup. With choices like that, lunch at the market is a no-brainer!
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

TONIGHT!!! THE FIRST BI-ANNUAL ROLLING THROUGH: A MOBILE SERIES BY “MY HOUSE” - Tuesday Evenings in May & June
The series will highlight four unique New Orleans neighborhoods and nonprofit partners – Bayou-Treme (The Bayou Treme Center), Central City (Good Work Network), Broadmoor (Broadmoor Improvement Association), and Bywater (The New Orleans Center for Creative Arts Institute).
“The series is unlike any other event in New Orleans,” says event organizer Barrie Schwartz “Our mission is to draw attention to New Orleans neighborhoods, support our nonprofit partners, spotlight the mobile food truck movement, and support our local small business owners.” Schwartz added that a portion of the proceeds will be given to the nonprofit partners.
**The first event is tonight from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., at The Bayou Treme Center (2541 Bayou Road). In addition to the food trucks, NOLA Drive-in will show “Singing In the Rain” inside the center, starting at 8 p.m.
