Two French-focused organizations co-host French at the Market

Updated:

Two French-focused organizations are joining forces in February to co-host the Lafayette Farmers and Artisans Market at the Horse Farm's second Saturday "French at the Market" celebration.

Les Amis, a parent-led non-profit that provides support for the French Immersion program in Lafayette Parish, will host a musical performance at 8:30 a.m. featuring French songs sung by Prairie Elementary School's kindergarten French immersion class. At 9:00 a.m., FrancoJeunes, a Louisiana group of French-speaking young professionals, will lead a French conversation circle open to anyone interested in speaking, hearing, or practicing French.

French at the Market is a monthly tradition of the Lafayette Farmers and Artisans Market at the Horse Farm to celebrate south Louisiana's French heritage and culture and to create a space for French-speakers of all ages, backgrounds, and skill-levels to gather and build community.

Local musician Ganey Arcement will lead this Saturday's Cajun jam, which takes place at the Market each week, 9-11 a.m.
