I’m always surprised when I happen over to the French Market and find music or cooking demos. Mostly because you would think they would work to make damn sure that locals know about them. In any case, I am not sure why they have chosen the spot where they do demos- oh wait a minute – that was where we used to stage the Crescent City Farmers Market once a week. I wonder if it has anything to do with that?
I’ll be in the Quarter for a week or two full-time during Tennessee Williams Festivals days and then back for the French Quarter Festival. I’ll be sure to spend time in the French Market, looking at local artists wares and maybe picking up a new flag to hang on my house for JazzFest. If you haven’t done that recently, give it another chance.
