If you love to shop and eat, This is the place for you. They had lots of reasonable things to buy. This is a very nice flea market experience. If you are a tourist or resident this is a great place to go and only a street car away.

Great shopping, great prices. Loved the food court, so much to choose from. The best Shrimp and Grits ever at Nawlins.

Went summer of 2001 before Hurricane Katrina (sounds like French Quarter wasn't affected much). It was fantastic, had a cafe au lait and beignet...why not live the stereotype and enjoy it!

We thoroughly enjoyed the deli foods, seafood salads, etc, and bought a selection, which we ate on their verandah, with $1 coffees. Our enjoyment of these delicious prepared salads was top notch, and we were for once able to avoid the stodgy carbs, fries, etc, that seem to make up so much of the local foods....the reasonably priced ones anyway....

I was hoping for authentic New Orleans craftsmanship... What I found was cheap, made in China tourist trap stuff. It was very crowded and all I could think about the whole time is leaving... Not a fan!

When you go to Cafe du Monde, be sure to venture on down the street heading north. There are some wonderful quality shops in the buildings leading to the market. The French Market itself is well worth the visit even if you don't plan to buy anything. It's charm out weighs the quality of some of the goods sold there.... More

If you need to acquire some tourist trinkets to take home, this is the spot to do it. Except t-shirts, a lot of the t-shirts they had there were cheapy knock offs, go to the regular stores for that. But otherwise all the same stuff. Lots of the vendors have fans running too, which is a real plus in that... More

The prices are awesome compared to anything on bourbon street. You should definitely bargain to get all your tourist shopping done here. Plenty to choose from and great experience.
