“Great Market”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We happened upon this neat market by a GPS recommendation. It is a neighborhood park with a huge farmers market in a circle pavilion on weekends. You can buy Aything here. It goes on forever. Meats, produce, a HUGE spice store, eggs, alcoholic drinks, gelattos, plants, seafood, cajun foods, and even pets and clothing. Usually street musicians playing in the vicinity. Great coffees, and the list goes on and on. Bring a large cooler to haul your purchases home. Everything is affordable and fresh. Plenty of parking in the area.

“Buy a Bloody Mary and hen all in the same vicinity!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

This place is great! With the frugal gormet in mind. Went there on a nice spring afternoon and picked up 3 cartons of portabello "small size" mushrooms, $1 apiece! Farm fresh eggs $2/ dozen. And of course a Bloody Mary, $4. Dellishes!
Lots of local butchers are here as well. Food stands too!
Perfect place to go and just walk around and mingle with the locals as well

“Food Food Food Fresh”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We drove to the market on a Saturday afternoon. There is a parking lot next door. The market features fresh vegetables, fruit and meats. The food was great looking and varied. Fresh coon is offered. There is also a great spice shop and a fully stocked meat shop. Prices were reasonable and the quality was excellent. It is worth the trip for the experience alone. It is also a good opportunity to get some fresh fruit for your travels.

“Fresh fruits for low price”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Soulard market is where you go on Fridays and Saturdays to grab all those fruits and veggies that are expensive at your grocery store. Just bring them home and wash them.

This is a must if you want fresh healthy foods at affordable prices.

“Weekends are the best....”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Had a nice time visiting here. You have to walk the whole place first to Check out all the vendors before making your choice to find the best product and price. Check out the spice shop also they have everything. They will let you taste them before you buy. its totally worth a stop!
