SO! I discovered Saturday Market today from this NOLA blog. It’s like Barr Street (which I love) times a thousand. They have the best in fresh, locally grown produce, seafood, baked goods, plus entertainment by local musicians.
The fun part is Market Tokens. If you don’t have cash, you can purchase Market Tokens, which can be exchanged for food, drinks and merchandise at both the Saturday and Tuesday Markets. They’re accepted by all the vendors, and they never expire.
Tuesday Market, which I plan to check out this week, features a local chef or restaurateur to create a special Tuesday Market menu with ingredients from the local vendors sold at the Green Plate Special tent. So fun and fab.
Also, in the spirit of staying, I unpacked the kitchen today. I even put a flower in the vase.
