Pete & Clara’s Seafood
Pete & Clara's Seafood is everything beautiful about the Crescent City Farmers Market: a family in white boots that know the waters and the community they feed alike. Chris knows what you want before you even ask, and Pete has guided you through cleaning your first soft shell crab. The Gericas have been with the market since its inception and as many of you know, our long time vendor Clara passed away in 2017, forever leaving a void in our hearts. The Gericas have always been, and will remain, a fundamental pillar in the growth and stability of our market. Clara was a friend to all and only had the best interests for others in mind, making her a great vendor representative at CCFM. Pete and Chris Gerica thrive on at the Uptown, Ochsner, and Downtown markets and the shop CCFM app with only the top quality seafood available.
