Five Foodie-Friendly Farmers Markets in New Orleans

Five Foodie-Friendly Farmers Markets in New Orleans, Flickr: cleberNew Orleans has long been known as a prime destination for foodies. Culinary types and their travel companions can certainly find lots to love about the vibrant farmers markets found in and around New Orleans. From traditional prepared foods to fresh produce, there are plenty of goodies to be had. Here are five places to peruse during your next trip to the Big Easy. 

With Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday market dates in different parts of the city, the Crescent City Farmers Market is one of the most popular in New Orleans. Check out the “green plate special” (a chef created dish featuring local products) and browse the best in fresh produce, cheese, meat, baked goods and more.

Ambiance abounds at the historic French market. With over six blocks of shopping/dining areas, the French market makes for a great day out. In addition to the usual farmers market fare, you can expect to find sit-down restaurants and a lively flea market.

This charming bi-weekly market features local products as well as German specialties. Located in St. Charles parish, the German Coast Farmers market often organizes cultural and historical events and features live music at many of the markets. 

The weekly Hollygrove Market is one of the best places in NOLA to score fresh produce. This unique organization’s mission is to increase access of fresh, local produce through the market, an on-site urban farm, and a lovely community garden space.

Located in beautiful Abita Springs (at the trailhead), this community event is more than a farmers market. In addition to local fare, visitors can enjoy impromptu jam sessions with area musicians, artists and craftspeople selling their wares, and the warm, welcoming ambiance of this special part of Louisiana.
