This may be my absolute favorite stop in New Orleans. This is the oldest open air market in the country, when I started going years ago that's basically what it was, just tables with stuff on them and a roof over it and open on all sides. In recent years they have really improved it (they still need to improve... More

We went there briefly. It was very hot on the day we walked through so we didn't take a long time looking. It was more like a flea market than an old fashioned food market. I would visit again to give it a better look, maybe earlier in the day.

Our "Walking Through New Orleans" Culinary History Tour of New Orleans we ended in at the French Market. I love the vast variety of food and little shops that are available. Great place to visit.

Lots of history in the area and many great opportunities for a good picture. The street artists, the locals, the row houses & historic buildings. There is a variety of local foods available in this district though I would recommend the warehouse district for the nicer bistros. Cafè Du Mondé and Cafè Beignet are both nice options though for a... More

Loud, busy, fun. You can find every souvenir you can imagine; live music; colorful, touristy. We had a really good gumbo; red beans and rice. Half the price of restaurants.

Rode the street car to the French Market. The French Market take up six city blocks. Lots of things to see and buy. Lots of walking. I end up buying three hats. Makes you think of France with the building and streets. If your in New Orleans go to the French Marker.

A good stroll through the Farmer's Market and the annex Flea market gives you a clear sense of New Orleans. If you are craving fresh fruit & veggies, visit the market on Wednesdays. Take a peek at the booth with every variety of pepper sauce i've ever seen.

The vendors have the same cheap trinkets you can find anywhere. They didnt bargain well and there was tax, which floored me. Went to a slushie stand, while I was waiting for my order, the worker was handling money and handing out the slushies. Not cool, then I watched him pick up straws with this bare hands. Needless to say,... More
