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.

A Tisket A Tasket - Cajun and Creole gift baskets filled with New Orleans products.

Old New Orleans French Market Seafood Co. - fresh shrimp, oysters and fish, boiled shrimp, crayfish and crabs , the sale of packaged hot sauce, dry packaged pre-seasoned products such as fish fry and shrimp fry, dry packaged mixes containing beans and peas, and packaged spices.

N'Awlins Cajun and Creole Spice - Cajun jambalaya, red beans, dirty rice and gumbo mix, along with plenty of spices

Loretta's - pralines and muffins.
