Jefferson Market (also known as Jefferson City Market) was on Magazine Street at General Pershing
between Berline and Napoleon streets.
In 1903 it was valued at $5,000.
In 1917 the city authorized plans and specifications
and advertisement for bids for the construction of the original market which was destroyed by the storm. A new market
was was erected in 1918 at a cost of $92,767.18
In 1932 Sam Stone Jr. $ Co. was approved to make alterations
to the market at 4303 Magazine Street.
As of 2005 the building was used as a school gymnasium.

"Another proud accomplishment of the [Mayor Martin] Behrman administration was the construction
of a number of new public markets. "These markets," the 1916 volume says, "are designed to give the maximum
of cleanliness and sanitation as well as freedom from flies and other contaminating insects and are of steel frame construction
to insure stability and durability." This photograph shows the Jefferson Market, Magazine Street and General Pershing,
under construction by the H.W. Bond Co.
The market was remodeled in 1932, and at the ceremonies celebrating its reopening,
the Times-Picayune Commissioner Fred Earhart deplored "the chain stores policy of sending their money outside the city
and urged support of home merchants." Times apparently haven't changed so drastically after all.
designed by City Architect E.A. Christy, now houses the gymnasium of St. George's Episcopal School."
