I have mentioned before how much I love the Hollygrove Market and Farm. They offer a weekly local produce box filled to the brim with freshly harvested produce and other local ingredients. You can pick your box up on Tuesdays from 12-6 or Saturdays from 10-2. All of the produce comes to the market from farms in Louisiana and Mississippi.
The market is hosting an event called Party in the Garden on Monday May 16th from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm. The event is held at the market and farm among the fruit and vegetable gardens. Their website says that "guests will have the opportunity to sample the fare of 20 New Orleans chefs and mixologists from restaurants such as Three Muses, Iris, Cure and Martinique Bistro, just to name a few, and swing to the music of live, local bands." How fun does that sound!
The most exciting part in my opinion is what one lucky winner will take home should they win the the grand raffle prize. The winner and 3 guests will tour several North Shore farms that provide produce to the Hollygrove Market. The tour will culminate with a “field to table” dinner for 4 at the Covey Rise Farm and Lodge in Husser, north of Covington. I love the concept of farm to table dining, and I can't imagine how much more an experience like that would be enhanced with the opportunity to see the farms where the produce is cultivated!
