Does anyone know anything about the various latino supermarkets in New Orleans? Can anyone give a recommendation on a place where the employees speak some English that has a good selection and fresh products?

      Email Chris DeBarr, he is the only chef that I know of that uses. He may get it locally, don't know. Contact info on his blog. http://chefcdb.livejournal.com/

      I've been shopping at the Ideal Market a lot lately. They have some geat stuff, especially in the meat and cheese departments. I wasn't crazy about their prepared foods though.

        I tried the Ideal on 18th near Severn and was quite pleased. Found everything I needed.

        The former Union Supermarket that was on S. Carrollton underneath Rock & Bowl moved out to Kenner - they have a good selection of items and they have daily lunch specials. Union Supermarket, 2105 W. Esplanade Ave. #A, Kenner, 504.469.1861.

        There is another Latino market on Florida Avenue in Kenner, Los Latinos Grocery (504) 443-1029 3521 Florida Ave Kenner, LA

        Here is a list of ethnic markets in New Orleans

          Ideal on South Broad (200 block, I believe) would be a good bet.
