ones and let them cool down in the outdoor pop-up fountains or take part in
other children's activities.

Each Saturday, the St. Bernard Seafood and Farmers Market provides fresh
food and fresh ideas to help local residents improve their quality of life.

The market will operate every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. through
October, rain or shine. It will be geared toward local farmers and fishermen
