Try This: Farmers Markets

“Uptown Square” Tuesday farmers market

A few Tuesdays ago my fiancé and I visited the Crescent City Farmers Market at the northeast corner of the Tulane Square (formerly and more popularly known as Uptown Square) parking lot at 200 Broadway Ave.

As we waited for the bell to ring at 9 a.m., we saw an amazing amount of fresh produce, chickens, ducks, cheese, baked goods, pies, kettle corn, plants, coffee and much more.

In less than an hour we had purchased a container of chèvre and a container of cow cheese curds (my first time trying these, and they’re delicious) from the same seller, plus a whole chicken, five tomatoes, a box (yes, an actual box) of okra, greens, scallions and a very large bag of kettle corn for my office (thanks Robert Stengle of Ye Olde Kettle Cooker; NolaKettleCorn.com) – all for less than dinner for two on the town.

Though vendors are subject to change, if this market was any indication, the goods offered are incredibly tasty and those behind the booths are knowledgeable, polite and happy to offer assistance.

Look for a Crescent City Farmers Market near you and learn more about their programs by visiting MarketUmbrella.org.
