how do you get palm oil in nola?

  1. get a croissant from a french vietnamese cafe
  2. run into a senegalese brother also in line for a croissant. he works in the french market he says.
  3. visit french market, find his stall, and ask "where can i get palm oil?"
  4. he sends you across the market to his "sister," she makes a phonecall to another lady
  5. lady number two does african hair braiding and... sells palm oil on the side.
  6. thanks mustapha-- of frenchmarket-- for the connect. oh btw, he used to live in detroit. 
  7. i think there's an easier way to find palm oil though.
