Happy Tuesday with Veggies, Tacos, Food Trucks and Lots of 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. Taceaux Loceaux returns for their second week of delicious food at the Green Plate Special tent! 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 Tuesday thru Thursday Noon and 7:00 pm and Saturday and Sundays 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  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
