Louisiana Eats

Hosted ByPoppy Tooker

On Louisiana Eats! NOLA food icon Poppy Tooker takes us into Louisiana's wide open fields, deep waters, bustling markets, and busy kitchens. Poppy's people are carrying on the traditions of Louisiana's wholly local but universally celebrated food, from farm to table, and sometimes barroom! Poppy roams the State to find the folks whose inspiration and innovation are taking the abundant wealth of Louisiana's food culture into the future. Let's eat!

Making Groceries Pandemic Style

On this week’s show, we’ve got your full pandemic market report. We begin with Darlene Wolnik, training and technical assistance director for the national Farmers Market Coalition. She gives us an overview of how farmers markets across the country are coping with the changing landscape of Covid-19.


Then, we’ll share the wonder of a totally touchless drive-thru shopping experience at a Crescent City Farmers Market, before we head to Baton Rouge for the lowdown on the Red Stick Farmers Market, from BREADA director, Copper Alverez.

Finally, we learn how Rouses has been helping independent restaurants stay in business during these trying times.
