Pete & Clara’s Seafood
As a founding vendor of the Tuesday market, Pete & Clara’s Seafood is an essential part of the CCFM community! Everything they sell was caught the previous day and is directly delivered to you and local chefs by their own hands — the freshest, healthiest, most local, and sustainable seafood you can get anywhere in New Orleans — some might say it's shrimply the best around! Pete does the fishing, mostly in Lakes Pontchartrain and Borne, while his daughter, Christina, does the processing and selling. Find them both at market Tuesdays and Thursdays and make sure you're swinging by early to ensure you are getting the freshest seafood in town!
