The grand opening of the Delcambre Seafood & Farmers Market will be held Saturday, May 11, from 8 am - 1 pm under the oaks of the Shrimp Festival grounds. The 70 vendors of seafood, produce, plants, and homemade food and crafts have learned from past experience to be ready for serious shoppers.
There are too many vendors to list them all, but highlights include fresh, local honey, grass-fed beef, several varieties of eggs (goose, duck, chicken, quail), homemade tamales, jellies, preserves and sauces, Vermilion Bay Sweet shrimp, driftwood sculptures . . . the list goes on and on. Though we are a sold-out Market-with no capacity for additional vendors-we have kept plenty of green space for comfortable shopping and rest areas.
