Westwego Seafood Market
Seafood doesnt come any fresher than this. When Westwego was founded in 1870, many early residents were fishermen, shrimpers and oystermen seeking the fastest route to bring seafood from the Gulf of Mexico to the markets of New Orleans. In the late 1960s, the Westwego market began when a fisherman parked his van in an overgrown lot to sell seafood to passers-by. Locals flock here to buy fresh fish, crabs and shrimp from more than 15 vendors, and the po-boys here are some of the yummiest in town.
