Crescent City Farmers Market

The Crescent City Farmers Market in New Orleans is home to some of the most unusual produce and the best artisanal products in the Gulf Coast region. Held in three locations on three days, the market is a great place to introduce yourself to the foods of this flavor-filled city. The market is held Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, with the Saturday version in the centrally located Warehouse District. In addition to fruits and vegetables, Crescent City features freshly caught [skipwords]fish[/skipwords], artisanal foods and farm-raised meats.
