The Fresh Market Opens on St. Charles Ave.


As foretold to us by the Fresh-masters, the transformation of that one-time funeral home into a grocery store at the corner of St. Charles and Louisiana is complete. The Fresh Market opens today in the space, offering amenities that include a fully stocked produce section, deli and seafood counter and bakery. Uptown Messenger got a sneak peek of the North Carolina chains New Orleans incarnation yesterday, and found the Mousse Truffee so you don't have to.


CBD Rouses Open for Grocery-Makin'


Putting the brakes on Poeyfarre's reign as the only store where you can get produce in the CBD, Rouses Markets opened their long-awaited store at 701 Baronne St. this morning. A crowd of dignitaries, including Mayor Mitch and famous N.O. chefs, were on hand to cut the really long sausage link (okay, it was a ribbon). Proving once again that we take food seriously in this town, a priest was also on hand for a blessing. 


Wendell Pierce to Help L9 Make Groceries


Wendell Pierce has played a trombonist and a detective, and, in real life, he's headed a neighborhood redevelopment effort. For his next role, the Treme and The Wire star is looking to cut into the scarcity of New Orleans groceries stores. The New Orleans native is partnering with former mayoral candidate and childhood friend, Troy Henry, and Chicago developer and former Lower 9 grocery store proposer, James Hatchett, to form Sterling Fresh Foods, the Washington Post reports.


St. Roch Market Nothin' But a Front, For Now


by Christina LeBlanc

Cruising by the St. Roch market recently, the sawdust seemed to take on the scent of oyster po-boys, and the collegial nature of the construction workers seemed to suggest years gone by. But, turns out, we'll only get to see our dreams of a reincarnated full-fledged market and neighborhood center play out on the silver screen. The construction project at the corner of St. Roch and St. Claude is, in fact, yet another film crew, according to a source at the scene.
