The French Market began as a Native American trading post on the banks of the Mississippi. Today, American’s oldest public market (1991 marked its Bicentennial) is the site of a robust farmer’s market, flea market, and the one and only Organic Banana.
Step up to the Banana for a delicious portable cooling system of your own choosing. Enjoy a mixed drink, frozen Margarita, Piña Colada, or Daiquiri of your selection. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that our Piña Colada has been recognized as the finest in the city—no small feat when you call New Orleans home.
The Banana proudly serves only the freshest seasonal ingredients from local farmers and suppliers like Old New Orleans Rum, the intoxicating local distillation that was born in the back streets of the 9th Ward. Learn more about Old New Orleans Rum, here.
