Long Anticipated St Roch Market Set To Open In Marigny Bywater
The project is set to include organic and fresh foods from a variety of vendors, as well as an “art walk” on the grounds of the market. Restoration work on the 8600 square foot market includes roofing replacement, exterior masonry repair, a complete restoration of the interior, and all new finishes and flooring.
The market dates back to 1875, when it was originally an open-air market like its more famous counterpart, The French Market. In 2007, the St. Roch Market was named one of 17 special recovery zones by then-mayor Ray Nagin. However, no work projects were put into action until the cause was taken up by the Mitch Landrieu administration.
Residents of the Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods are encouraged by the host of new small businesses, hip night spots, and art gallery scene that have all sprouted from a grass roots revival and gentrification of the area. The St. Roch Market will add a much needed boost to the efforts of bringing these New Orleans neighborhoods back to pre-Katrina glory.
