Amanda’s Fruit Specialties
Our first Vendor of the Week for Womens’ History Month is Amanda’s Fruit Specialties! Amanda has been bringing fresh juices and popsicles to the market for just under 20 years. Growing up in Nicaragua, she ate fresh fruit like papaya, coconut, and mango daily. She wanted to bring those bright seasonal tastes to New Orleans, packing a punch in her juice and ice pops. Some of Amanda’s most famed juices and popsicles include peach lemonade, watermelon lime, ginger lemonade, and her avocado cream popsicle. Catch Amanda at a Tuesday, Thursday, or occasional Sunday market to grab one of these sweet treats!
