Market At The Marina

In partnership with the Houma Downtown Development Committee, Market at the Marina is an outdoor farmers market that offers our community an opportunity 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 vendors and easily purchase healthy grocery and pantry items for themselves and their families.

The farmers market is located at the Downtown Marina and features local food vendors. The market is held the first Saturday of every month.

Any interested local vendors are invited to complete the Market Application.
