The much anticipated Delcambre Seafood & Farmers Market kicks-off tomorrow morning, where more than 80 vendors will gather along the Delcambre Shrimp Festival grounds (409 E. Main Street), selling their goods direct to the public — filling a void for residents who struggle to find venues providing healthy, fresh food fare nearby. Tables open for business beginning at 8 a.m., followed by an official “rope cutting” ceremony at 10:30 a.m. Other events include cooking demonstrations, a Louisiana wetlands exhibit, music, activities for kids, and more!
The market was made possible through a grant from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation’s Challenge for a Healthier Louisiana program, which awarded $1 million last fall to the West End Health & Wellness Project (focused on revitalization efforts within the West End of New Iberia).
