New Orleans, LA – Over the past hundred years, German surnames have been associated with meats, dairies, and bakeries throughout Southeast Louisiana. One German name market shoppers, today, associate with good flavor is Schexnayder, makers of traditional cured meat products. You'll find them roasting and sampling in a number of area markets. Consider a quick drive to the Wednesday German Coast Farmers Market in St. Charles Parish to meet the Schexnayders on home turf selling alligator sausage, hogs head cheese, and even beef jerky. USDA inspected, their operation is considered as a state of the art enterprise that's preserving traditional Louisiana foods.
