Where is Timmy Perilloux? You know the guy - the one with the big truck and even bigger veggies. Mr. Timmy hails from the good ole River Parishes in Montz, Louisiana, right outside of the Bonnet Carre Spillway (where market manager Cristina grew up!) Nestled in the land of rich alluvial soil across from the Mississippi River. Timmy is at the Uptown, Bywater, and Bucktown markets weekly.
