NEW ORLEANS – Employees and community members will celebrate the return of fresh food and groceries to the Marigny / Bywater neighborhood from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. March 10 at the grand opening ceremony for Robért Fresh Market, located at 2222 St. Claude Ave.
The event is open to the public and will feature samples of Robért’s famous “accent items.” These items include favorites such as family-recipe smoked salmon, Better Cheddar dip, chicken salad and more. The event will include boiled crawfish and BBQ for sale, as well as live music from a local school.
“We are excited to once again be an integral part of this neighborhood and to meet the needs of the community,” General Manager Marc Robért III said. “This is an incredibly vibrant neighborhood, and we are thrilled to be serving this wonderful community.”
The store opened Dec. 30 to excited crowds eager to see the new approximately 27,000-square-foot retail space. Both the décor and product offerings have been tailored to the needs of the community. In addition to an extensive selection of groceries, produce, meat and seafood, the store also features a bakery, fresh sushi, a pizza oven, a sandwich bar, hot food bar, barbecue venue, and fine wines.
The store’s renovation and construction project began in early 2017, and the location now employs 90 total associates. In addition to the grocery, the location also features additional retail space; Metairie Small Animal Hospital is the first announced tenant.
Robért Fresh Market’s normal operating hours are 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. seven days a week.
