The area
Address
Neighborhood: Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.

The were only a few vendors. The produce and services offered looked amazing. It was a hot day so expect there will be more vendors when weather gets cooler.

First things first: They apparently have their market in multiple locations through out the week. This review is regarding the Tuesday market (9 am - 1 pm) at Tulane University Square.

I was visiting from out of town and I had really hard time finding this place. Tulane University Square is nowhere near the campus and I found this out the hard way. Pretty much no one on campus had a clue what I was talking about when I mentioned this place. You could walk from campus campus but I don't recommend it. The place basically looks like a large brick shopping center.

Anyway once I got there, I couldn't find the farmer's market because it's not really out in the open. It's behind the "square" and not visible from the street. It took me 20 minutes to realize there were people back there - you can't hear them if you're standing in the square. The market was in a parking lot behind the building, past the area where buses park. The flyers for the market could use more detail.

All the market vendors were packing up by the time got there. I would have been completely pissed, if it wasn't for one vendor who sold me a tasty beet fruit drink. I'm sure there were more cool thins there, but I didn't get a chance to experience it because the market was so hard to find.

Fresh, local food
Nov 2013
While not as big as we had expected, the Tuesday market we visited exceeded our expectations by far. We expected a bunch of produce stands, which were there, of course, but there was so much more.
There was fresh seafood caught that morning, including crab, catfish, and shrimp; milk, yogurt, cheese, and butter from small, local dairies; and a variety of honey and other locally grown goods.
Not having much room to cook in our hotel room (not to mention, no desire to do so), what we really enjoyed was all of the stands selling prepared foods. We walked away with a gigantic loaf of the most amazing ciabatta bread, two different types of wonderful, homemade hummus (made with ingredients from the seller's own garden), some orzo pasta with roasted veggies, and two of the best little pies we have ever tasted!
They even make it easy if you don't have cash - there is a stall where you can swipe your credit or debit card and purchase wooden tokens redeemable at all of the stalls in the market.
If you're looking to meet locals and help out small businesses, or even if you just want a break from all the wonderful but heavy foods in the area, give the farmers market a shot. You won't be disappointed.

Fresh Farmers' Market Treats Only Good For Locals
My two-star review of the Crescent City Farmers' Market might be a bit bias, as I visited the spot with a massive appetite. My starving friend and I had high hopes of sampling fresh, local snacks, but sadly discovered most vendors were selling meats, fish, and other items that required additional cooking or refrigeration. There were essentially no grab-and-go options; it was disappointing.
