New Pythian Market

Pythian Market, the highly anticipated urban food collective located on the ground floor of The Pythian (234 Loyola Avenue) will open to the public on Thursday, May 31. The renovated and repurposed ground floor space of a mixed-use development originally commissioned by the Colored Knights of Pythias in 1908, will provide a unique dining and shopping experience for locals and visitors with 14 locally-sourced purveyors, fast craft cocktails and retail vendors.

“The Pythian building played an integral role in New Orleans’ early civil rights movement and was a place where the African American community congregated and celebrated. We want to recreate that sense of a convivial gathering place—a centralized hub where food, culture, spirit and community converge,” says Lisa Brefere, founder of award-winning food and beverage consulting firm Gigachef and curator of Pythian Market.
