Houma, LA, March 2023 – Terrebonne General Health System and the Houma Downtown Development Association will host Market at the Marina this Saturday, March 4, from 8 am – 12 pm (rain or shine) on the marina across from Terrebonne General. The outdoor farmers market allows our community to experience local vendors who produce fresh and healthy food and non-food health items. Our goal is to make it easy for the community to meet and engage with these vendors and purchase healthy grocery and pantry items for themselves and their families.
To celebrate National Nutrition Month, Terrebonne General Weight and Diabetes Management and Clinical Dietitians will be in attendance. The market lineup comprises over thirty food and health vendors, including fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood, bread, jams, jellies, salsa, infused cooking oil, ready-to-heat sauces, sweets, pastries, hair care, body items, and more. There will be a new food court with six different hot-cooked food vendors. Insulated bags, perfect for holding temperature-sensitive items, will be sold for $10.
Stop by St Matthew's Episcopal School STEM Lab and try out six new experiments, then listen to live music by Daytton Turner.
This month's Marina Sprout theme includes nutrition education activities. Kids will receive a $2 voucher for completing the challenge. Parents can register their kids at the information booth, pick up their sprout journal, and head to the monthly challenge area. Dr. Jill Sutton and Dr. Courtnie Seaton at Terrebonne General Pediatric Care proudly sponsor this new healthy initiative at Market at the Marina. St Matthew's Episcopal School STEM Lab is back with all new experiments.
Market at the Marina is held on the first Saturday of every month, from 8 am-noon, at the Downtown Houma Marina, located under the Twin Span bridges and across from Terrebonne General Health System. The event is held rain or shine unless there is extreme weather. There is no cost to enter the Market.
