We stopped by the market for their fried catfish plate with a large serving of fries and french bread. It would be hard to find any fresher or more delicious fish. You can eat inside, outside, or carry it out. Specials change daily.

Fresh seafood. Many stalls selling fresh seafood. Giant shrimp was $4 a pound. They sell turtle meat and alligator meat. Wish I could have bought some.

Shrimp served on my poor-boy were so fresh and lite tasting, a person would swear ( if religion allows) the shrimp would float off of the 8" sandwich, with tomatoes lettuce onions and special sauce!! This place has all kinds of items for sell to eat or to use in cooking. INTERESTING. Every food item is "fresh off the boat"... More

The vendors have shrimp in big coolers like they just took them off the boat . . . which they probably did. Dome dealers have... More
