Disappointing to say the least. Not much different to any other "flea" market I've been to worldwide except this was most unauthentic.

There is a food court with po boys, jambalaya and other cajun specialties. There are also lots of places to quench your thirst.There are also many loca artisans displaying and selling... More

I love the French Market! This was our first stop when we arrived in NOLA. Even though it was Thanksgiving Day, they were open on their regular hours of operation. The French Market is easily accessible from the French Quarter. We got there via a Streetcar. Buy you could also hail a cab or a carriage or just walk to... More

If you love flea markets and shopping, this is a must. Great bargains on trinkets and souvenirs. They also have nice silver jewelry, scarves, masks, etc. They also have great deals on food and drinks. Cheaper than in the restaurants and bars.

This is a very touristy market. The area is right along the River front trolley line so getting there is easy. That said we went for the atmosphere and the local color. Lots of spices, hot sauces and alligator related food. The flea market just beyond was loaded with trinkets, clothing and New Orleans beads. You should stop by at... More

If you are in The French Market and are interested in fine sterling silver jewelry for yourself or as a gift for someone else then you must visit Hasan Cicek at his booth Anatolian Silver! My husband and I were in the French Market during the week of Thanksgiving while visiting our family. There are several jewelry and sterling vendors... More

Great mix of vendors, artists and food!! Lots of hot sauces and local wares. Bought some cook books, a wallet, souveniers, and, of course, hot sauces. It is central and surrounded by praline shops and yet more hot sauce shops!
