Food trucks have some company! The modern food hall concept traces its local roots back to St. Roch Market, which first opened on St. Claude Avenue in 1875 and transformed the New Orleans culinary scene. Historically, St. Roch was a multiple-vendor market and hosted a po’boy shop and seafood market.
Today, New Orleans food halls feature stalls with modern delicacies from the best local vendors. The St. Roch Market team opened Auction House Market earlier this year in the Warehouse District. The newest to the scene? Pythian Market, serving inspired pizzas from Meribo Pizza and much more.
