Las Pulgas: Voices from a New Orleans Market

2017 Fall Symposium: Las Pulgas, Voices From a New Orleans Market from Southern Foodways on Vimeo.

At the 2017 symposium, Sara Fouts and Fernando Lopez provided a historical and ethnographic background of Latino migration to New Orleans, and described the rise of the pulga. In the corresponding oral history project, they share stories of vendors from Mexico, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, and Honduras to illustrate how these individuals use the markets to forge their own cultural and economic spaces that help make up El Sur Latino.
