Farmer’s Market on Hold - Due to flooding from Tropical Storm Isidore and Hurricane Lili, the opening of the Thibodaux Farmers Market will remain on-hold until further notice by the LSU Ag Center and the Thibodaux Main Street Board. According to Joyce Benoit, Main Street Manager, area growers along with local seafood producers were completely wiped out by the storms. The fall market is tentatively scheduled to open sometime in November, possibly on or before the weekend of Thibodeauxville. The City of Thibodaux and the Thibodaux Main Street Board would like to thank the community for its past support of the Farmers Market and are looking forward to another successful market season.
NSU FANS…One of the most important football games in the history of the Colonels will be played Thursday night at John L. Guidry Stadium at Nicholls State University.

This football game will be televised nationally on FOX Southwest beginning at 7:00 p.m. Mayor Charles Caillouet encourages everyone to attend the game and pack the stadium since our city and university will be prominently displayed.
