St. Roch Market, New Orleans
For food lovers, a trip to NOLA wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Southern food hall St. Roch Market, New Orleans.
On our last day in New Orleans we woke up early to visit the last place on our list of must-visits. Of course it was food related.
A little pushed for time, we jumped into a cab and rode the seven-minute journey through the French Quarter and into the neighbouring St Roch, to visit St. Roch Market, New Orleans.
What once was an outdoor market, is now a roofed Southern food hall and home to thirteen different vendors.
St Roch is a foodie and photographers dream, the interior is mostly white with pops of colour provided by all the amazing food displayed. The vendors are located along the sides of the building and communal tables and chairs take up the space in the middle.
The vendors are:
- Fete au Fete – for real Southern and NOLA food.
- St. Roch Forage – a purveyor of fresh produce from the Gulf Coast.
- T2 Streetfood – for modern Asian cuisine.
- Elysian Seafood – seafood heaven, including ceviche, catfish and the poboy.
- The Mayhaw Bar – gorgeous bar and amazing concoctions.
- JuiceNOLA – looking for something healthy? Look no further.
- Bittersweet Confections – cakes, chocolate and pastries, oh-my!
- Fitai – Haitian creations and baked crab mac and cheese.
- Elysian Oyster Bar – oysters, oysters, crab claws and gumbo. Get your seafood fix here.
- Coast Roast Coffee – here we found the best coffee in NOLA.
- La Mezcia Mexicana – I think you can guess what they serve here 🙂
- Good Bird – a ton of delicious dishes made from rotisserie chicken.
- Brugger’s BBQ – here you’ll find good ol’ Southern BBQ.
Good luck making a quick decision here. We walked past all the eateries at least three times before finally deciding on our breakfast.
After over-indulging the last few days I decided to pick something a little healthier. I ordered the Toast Supreme (US$7.50), which was mashed avo, cherry tomatoes, black beans, corn, cotija cheese, avocado chipotle dressing, fried egg and chime cherry space. This was sensational, filling and full of flavour.
I washed down my breakfast with a Skinny Green Smoothie (US$7.25) and one of Coast Roast Coffee’s Cappuccino’s (US$3.55).
I’ve been told that the PB & J Smoothie (US$7.25) and the breakfast burrito was equally as delicious.
This place is definitely worth a visit the next time you’re in New Orleans. Be sure to go on an empty stomach and with plenty of time to check it out and decide on a dish.
