Member Spotlight

St. Roch Market Site

Thanks to GNOEA member Kevin Pedeaux, Operator and Owner CR Coffee, for hosting this week’s networking event for GNOEA members at the historical St. Roch Market!

This New Orleans historical landmark has been a public market since 1875! What began as an open market all those years ago, is now an enclosed market for small business entrepreneurs serving seafood, plate lunches and more. Pedeaux has been the operator since September 2023 and continues to watch it evolve.
