This Cajun Meat Market Was Voted “Favorite Place To Buy Boudin In Louisiana”
Thanks for voting in the "Favorite Place To Buy Boudin In Louisiana" poll everyone! Each week we had really good participation, averaging well over 900 votes each time. We began our quest to find out who makes the BEST Boudin in April.
Of course, we did not have a list of all the Boudin locations in the state, because that would have been impossible. Boudin is a Louisiana delicacy and the #1 comfort food sold in the Bayou State. So, it is sold at nearly all the Southern Cooking restaurants and at most of the convenience stores/gas stations across the State. Let's not forget about the thousands of family-owned and operated Meat Markets in Louisiana. Every last one of them is special in their own way. We tip our hats to them for keeping the tradition and culture of Boudin alive for more than two centuries.
That said we had a well-rounded list of 100+ Boudin vendors and markets that represented major regions of the state. We begin the poll on a Wednesday so let Week 1 run a little longer than 7 days to every participant a chance to go through the huge list. Starting with Week 2, we went through the process of elimination and a good portion of the vendors listed in the poll fell off.
As the weeks went by one Boudin meat market emerged as the front-runner. By Week 3 we had our "Top 5" group and this business from Marksville had claimed the #1 spot! They continued to pull away from the rest of the pack as the days went by, racking up votes.
Between my going on vacation and the Memorial Day holiday, poll participants had a few extra days to vote in Week 4. The voting is now over and the poll is closed. Below is a look at the final results and the overall winner:
