“I think the market is starting to prove itself,” said Debbie Garrot. “We’re going to have lots of crafts, food, canned vegetables and fruit. It’ll be pretty much the same thing as last time.”
Hamburgers will also be sold at the market to help Abbeville High School’s Project Graduation.
The biggest difference is, this month, the Farmer’s Market will be partnering with Hospice of Acadiana.
“That’s a really good thing,” said Garrot.
During the Farmer’s Market, Hospice of Acadiana will be holding a plant sale. The sale will be held from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m., in conjunction with the market, in both Magdalen Square and the parking lot of Magdalen Place/ The Depot. On Monday, April 25, the plant sale will be held again from 8 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. in the same locations.
The proceeds of the plant sale will go to the organization.
According to Rusti Conque, Hospice of Acadiana opened its doors to the area in 1983.
“The mission of Hospice of Acadiana is to enable persons with terminal illnesses to live as fully and comfortably as possible, to emphasize quality rather than length of life, to help people deal with grief and to be an educational resource center in the areas of death, dying, terminal care and related fields,” Conque said. “Hospice of Acadiana Foundation, Inc. raises monies to fund programs for which Hospice of Acadiana does not charge and to supplement other needs of the organization.”
“We’re hoping everyone will come out and support us,” said Garrot.
