The Post Katrina opening date is November 22nd, 2005
The French Market is purported to be the oldest City Market in America Included in the French Market is a Farmer's Market section which has food items. Unfortunately, this section of the market seems to get smaller each year.
We did buy some pralines here. But Bob prefers to use a regular market with more reasonable prices when he actually shops for food.
Some of the merchants in the Farmer's market (which is closer to Canal Street than the French Market area) are
F & M Produce - Fresh produce, including garlic and pepper strings and unpackaged fresh and dry herbs.
Mama San's - Asian cookbooks along with spices, sauces and marinades.
John's Place - A variety of pumpkins will be on sale soon.
