Happy Healthy Tuesday with Fresh Food, Red Beans and Wine, Beer and Lots of Music!

Happy Tuesday!

Farmer's Market and Fresh Food!
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 La Cocinita food truck to the Green Plate Special. This week choose from Market Arepas, stuffed with chile-roasted squash, kale and black bean relish, and goat cheese (add some brisket if you want!), a variety of tasty tacos, and a side of rice and beans. Finish your lunch with a watermelon-mint agua fresca and an apple-dulce de leche bread pudding. Lunch doesn’t get much tastier!

Eat local and find more fresh veggies at the Hollygrove Market.   You can go by their location at 8301 Olive Street Monday  thru Friday 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sundays 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 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
