Delcambre Market

Delcambre Market

 

The first Saturday of the month, down on the waterfront in Delcambre, Louisiana, finds this quiet stretch of water buzzing with the activity of a farmers’ market in full swing. For this farmers’ market is a little different from what we are typically familiar with. Alongside the corn, mirliton and okra vendors, the hot sauce man and the preserves lady, there’s another draw, which brings people in from as far away as Alabama. Shrimp boats, such as the FB Lil’ Man tie up to the dock here with a line of eager patrons, giant wheelie coolers in tow, camped out waiting for their arrival.
