The Lafayette Farmers and Artisans Market at the Horse Farm is an ideal pre-Festival International destination for visitors and locals seeking the ultimate Lafayette Saturday experience. The Market will be open at 8 a.m. before downtown activities begin and will feature dozens of Louisiana vendors selling handcrafted artwork, homegrown fruits and vegetables, and locally made snacks for all weekend adventures.
At 10 a.m., Lafayette Fire Department firefighters and a fire truck will visit the Market. The firefighters will offer a free CPR demonstration in anticipation of next Saturday's "Be a Heart Starter!" training sessions at the Cajun Dome. By increasing the number of residents trained in bystander CPR administration, our community can make Acadiana a safer place to live and to work.
Courtney Granger and Drew Simon, both members of the four time Grammy nominated music group Pine Leaf Boys, will lead this week's Cajun Jam, which takes place at the Market every week, 9-11 a.m.
