St. Roch Market Jumping Back From the Panedemic

St. Roch Market, one of the only remaining food halls in New Orleans, almost closed because of losing vendors and having a slow business. CR Coffee Shops which is owned by Kevin Pedeaux came to the rescue.

Pedeaux stepped in an actually took over the lease for the food hall and has been rebuilding and dedicating his money and time to the hall since September. Currently, the hall has eleven vendors with a waiting list. This is amazing news since the historic building that houses St. Roch Market has not been full since before the pandemic.

If your a vendor that still needs a home, there are some other places that have space for food vendors. One is Backatown Plaza market and it is located on Claiborne Avenue. The first phase of the new project will be be able to hold thirty vendors, a stage, rain gardens and other green spaces.

St. Johns is another space, formerly Mayhew Bakery, which will now house Nolita. Nolita has been a staple since three Mardi Gras ago. Owner Martha Gilreath is the founder of Nolita which serves king cakes. Not only will you be able to purchase a king cake, but you will be able to get some crawfish bread, danishes baguettes, and much more.

Gretna will get a new development which will be a three-story building with a restaurant, barbershop and green space. Uptown Brewery is excited to expand to the West Bank along with Port Orleans Brewing. The development is located at Huey P Long Avenue and 2nd Street.

And finally, Seafood Sally’s will reopen with a facelift. This is just in time for Black Restaurant Week in New Orleans. Black Restaurant Week will include Addis Nola, Baby’s Snack Box, Nice Guys Bar & Grill, Nonno’s Cajun Cuisine, Peewee’s Crab Cakes on the Go, Backatown Coffee Parlour, and Meals from the Heart Cafe and much more.
