Convenience Fees: Due to rising fees and charges from credit card companies beginning January 1, 2021 the Lafayette Jockey Lot will begin charging a 3.5% convenience fee to all monies collected via Credit Card.
* Please remember to let your customers know that FREE GIFT Wrapping is available for those items purchased from a Vendor during the Holiday Market Event. The Gift Wrapping will be available in the 200 section.
This Holiday Season, the Lafayette Jockey Lot will be pairing with the Louisiana Youth Initiative, Inc. to help make the holidays just a little merrier for local families in need. While a visit and photo with Santa are free to customers with a donation in our Holiday Tent, the Jockey Lot has also committed to sponsoring several families. Vendors and Employees wishing to support the Jockey Lot in “OPERATION CHRISTMAS” can donate non-perishable food items or toys to the Louisiana Youth Initiative, Inc. in the Lobby. Your donations will be distributed through the Louisiana Youth Initiative, Inc. to the parents of these families so that the children’s Merry Christmas arrives courtesy of “Santa”. What a great way to give back to our community! By working together, we can all make the Holidays a little merrier for these families!
*Those families wishing to personally sponsor a family should inquire in the Market Office. We will be happy to supply you with the necessary paperwork to sponsor a family.
General Maintenance: Should you experience a maintenance issue please report it to the office as soon as possible.
