Today in NOLA 7.23.17

Today in NOLA 7.22.17

Now, more to do this Saturday.

Low Cost Locavore: Thoughts from the Bandwagon


I started my own week-long version of the Eat Local Challenge to see if – contrary to popular belief – it could be more than just a game for privileged people with too much time on their hands, in which the “prize” is a smug sense of self-satisfaction. Yes, I arguably have too much time on my hands. In the end though, if I felt any satisfaction with myself it was because I spent less than usual on groceries and felt healthier from eating so many vegetables, which is not such a bad thing. 


So Fresh and So Green: Hollygrove's Garden Party


Whether you buy their veggies straight from the source or eat them plated at restaurants like Tivoli & Lee, most NOLA folks have enjoyed produce from Hollygrove Market (8301 Olive Street). Tomorrow night, the farm’s fans can show some love at the nonprofit’s Fourth Annual Party in the Garden. 


Hotel Modern Opens Upscale Pop-Up, "Why Not?"


The Hotel Modern (Lee Circle, 936 St. Charles) is combining two of the city’s favorite food trends, pop-up restaurants and buying local.

Hollygrove Market Extends Hours


by Jillian Firnhaber

Locally grown produce will be available five days a week at the Hollygrove Market. In honor of their fourth anniversary, the Olive Street retail branch (8301 Olive St.) of the Market and Farm is extending the days and hours during which they are open. Rather than just Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday, now shoppers will have access to fresh, locally grown produce on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, as well as Saturday and Sunday. The changes take effect on Nov. 3.

Today in New Orleans: 5.14.12


Today, the Hollygrove Market and Farm puts together a New Orleans sampler platter for the ages, the Black Widow Salon returns to the Quarters, and a former local rock scene regular returns home at Zeitgeist. On this day, we mark the birthday and final day on Earth of legendary clarinetist Sidney Bechet (1897-1959). His style made New Orleans clarinet what it is today. Now take a little of that panache to these:


All is Poeyfarre

Warehouse District Survey Said...Grocery Store!



As populations picks up in the Warehouse District, so, too, must the amenities. Rouse's is slated to open on the other side of the CBD in the near future, but for the condo-dwellers closer to the River, there's already a place to buy liquor, groceries, organic produce and even have a coffee. On July 1, Poeyfarre (pronounced poe-e-fare) opened at the site of an old metal fabrication building on the street of the same name.
