While The Original Farmers Market at Third and Fairfax has always been the perfect grocery shopping destination, the new Merchant of the Month program is sure to become the talk of the neighborhood.
All through 2019, a different vendor will offer a special promotion each month, including deals on everything from pastries and produce to meats and marinades, for shoppers who make use of the Market’s bountiful offerings. With the Market celebrating 85 years of business this summer, this new program is the perfect way to get in on the celebration.
This month’s spotlight is on Monsieur Marcel’s Seafood Market, a true Mediterranean style seafood market carrying the finest and freshest seafood from local waters and from around the world. The shop is owned by husband and wife, Stephane and Katy Strouk, who also own Monsieur Marcel Gourmet Market and Monsieur Marcel Bistro, all three of which are conveniently located on the East Patio. Stephane first visited the Farmers Market as a tourist and fell in love with the bustling scene that reminded him so much of the marché couvert in his home country of France. He decided to open a gourmet shop where customers could find a taste of his home. Later, Stephane and Katy took the reins of the Seafood Market so his customers could easily obtain fresh fish from the trusted Marcel brand. The Strouks are proud to offer an unparalleled gourmet selection of seafood, with a focus on local, sustainably caught options. Shoppers can find live lobster, shrimp, salmon, tuna, cod, snapper and a rich variety of daily catches always available, along with a well-versed and friendly staff. Monsieur Marcel’s Seafood Market is also available on Mercato.com, which means you can get all your seafood needs
delivered right to your doorstep.
All month long, shoppers who spend $25 or more at Monsieur Marcel’s Seafood Market receive a free Monsieur Marcel Seafood Spice Blend! Prepare fresh, flavorful snapper and serve with couscous and veggies for an easy weeknight meal or rub the spice blend on shrimp before you toss them on the grill – the options are endless! This offer expires on July 31st but stay tuned for a new Merchant of the Month in August!
