Add another foodie destination to Freret’s Restaurant Row between Napoleon and Jefferson Avenues in Uptown New Orleans. The new Rouses Market at 4645 Freret Street features an unrivaled selection of prepared foods, from chopped salads made to order to Rouses-In-House prepared entrees and sides, to sushi, poke, stir-fries, and ramen made right before your eyes. The market also houses the company’s first full-scale restaurant. Freret Faire is open for breakfast and lunch. The menu is predominantly vegan.
The store was designed specifically for the neighborhood. Murals inside honor Big Chief Monk Boudreaux of the Golden Eagles, and his wife and children and grandchildren, who now form the members of the Golden Eagles. The Mardi Gras Indian craftsman and musician lives in and is deeply rooted in the Freret community. The murals were created by Monika Kelly Studio in consultation with Collections of Collections and Rouses Creative Team, using photos by Erika Goldring, who is a Golden Eagle Baby Doll, and lives in the neighborhood.
While this is a small-format store, it features all of the fresh food and services that Rouses Markets is known for, plus some exciting new local food and products picked from Rouses Pop Ups.
Regular store hours are 6am to 11pm.
