Lartigue has been a name synonymous with seafood in the Mobile/Baldwin Counties for almost 40 years. The family business started in Mobile in 1978 and nine years later put down roots in Baldwin County when a second location was opened in Gulf Shores. The west beach location eventually outgrew its original location and the business was moved to Orange Beach. In addition to selling seafood to the public, Roger Lartigue’s focus includes calling on retailers and restaurants in a wholesale capacity supplying businesses throughout the southeast, from Mississippi to Panama City, Florida and as far north as Nashville.
Lartigue prides himself in going straight to the sources – from the boats, to the docks and seafood houses and even seeking international outlets to expose customers to a variety of seafoods. His enthusiasm for the industry comes from being born and raised in the business and witnessing the evolution and the unexpected attrition that occurred after the Deepwater Horizon incident.
Years of relationships with family fishing and shrimping businesses have continue to fuel Lartigue’s passion for seafood and provided him with a recent opportunity to showcase his talents within a local Baldwin county grocery chain. Manning’s Piggly Wiggly approached Lartigue about operating a seafood market within their Fairhope
location. Roger and his staff on now on hand daily to offer their expertise and suggestions on an expansive offering of fresh seafood with plans to duplicate the seafood market in Manning’s other locations.
The cases and freezers at Lartigue’s Seafood Market are stocked with shrimp, royal reds, oysters, crabmeat, grouper, catfish, snapper, tilapia, pompano, salmon, sea scallops, sushi grade ahi tuna, poke cubes, suku blocks and so much more. Specialty items include gumbo, jalapeño stuffed peppers, crab pie, crawfish boudin, oyster dressing, seafood stuffed potatoes, etouffee, crabmeat stuffing, tuna dip, salmon dip and homemade cocktail sauce. They will also steam your seafood purchase with their original seasoning that is available in spicy or mild.
As a purveyor of international imports, Lartigue’s will continually be seeking and adding new and different products. Be sure to stop by and see what products are available for sample.
