Mr. Okra calls bullshit on the French Market

This award winning short documentary takes a look at one of the most colorful characters in the city, Mr. Okra. We follow him around the 9th ward and French Quarter as he shares thoughts on food and life in the city, including the story of his name. Particularly interesting is his take on the modern day French Market. “It’s gone”, he says, referring to the produce and fish markets. As he tours the market shaking his head, you can’t help but agree that it’s gone.

  1. Yep! I can’t stand the French Market now. too much tourist stuff, there are enough stores that sell that stuff. It’s overrun the market…so so sad all the things that have gone away. Even Kaldi’s coffe house 🙁
