The first Jean Lafitte Town Market is scheduled for Saturday, September 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 920 Jean Lafitte Road.

Mayor Tim Kerner says the town market is the first in a series of monthly events. "It's a chance for our community and visitors from across the area to get together in Jean Lafitte to purchase fresh seasfood from the source. We will also offer food prepared by local restaurants, local arts and crafts, and live music."

The market will take place at the Jules Nunez Seafood Pavilion and AJ & Sheron Fabre Market on Bayou Barataria.
