Loved this shopping experience! Perfect for great ethnic souvenirs at great prices! Fun! Open-air market atmosphere! Fabulous sites, local art and music street performers! bright colorful booths, friendly happy vendors, great prices, great food ... Crawfish bites and oysters on the half were a great savory snack! Will recommend and go back again!

We wondered the open air French market. It was a good time walking around with friends. Honestly everyone was selling the same trinkets found at any town USA. Worse the items sold as marginally ($1-2) more than the same product on stores by canal street. Only buy things that you will absolutely not find anywhere else. Otherwise I would wait... More

There are too too many of the same venders at various area's within. But some of the real local artist work were worth the stroll through. We made a purchase with a wonderful local lady ~ for bottle opener she designed that has magnet catcher.Ms Sherrill was so nice chatting with us..

This market was once a place where you could get some pretty unique trinkets and things as gifts. Now the vast majority of the market is things you can purchase anywhere in the city, and for allot less if you do a little searching.

Check the French Market out while in the Quarter. I found a purse there for 15.00 and walked into a store right next to the Market and they wanted 35.00 for the same purse! We found most of our souvenirs there at the Market.

It's a pleasant walk and lots of fun stores to browse through. The flea market next to it is a world of its own. SO fun!

This has changed over the years, but it was still enjoyable. A nice place to visit while out walking. Best snowballs ever on a hot summer day!
