Good food and a great place to get a souvenir at a reasonable price. You can even deal your price with many vendors

On our first day strolling about, we came upon the French Market. My interest piqued and in we went. I was not disappointed at all. It was lots of fun with vendors of all sorts selling their stuff. We had our first Snow Ball and it was yummy. I also bought a beautiful braided bracelet for our daughter and the... More

The French market in Nola is a fun way to pass a couple hours. It's a good market but not great, a lot of what's in there is commercial junk but there are also treasures to be found and good food to be had. You just have to seek out the local stuff. Many of the stalls are repetitious as... More

French Market, broadly, stretches from the Joan of Arc statue to the Old Mint building, along Decatur and N.St.Peters St. It has restaurants, shops and lots of vendors selling produce and food. At the north end, there is the Flea Market that has lots of tourist items like t-shirts and jewelry, etc. There is also a Farmers Market every Wednesday... More

The French Market, not to be confused with the French Quarter, where it is located, is nothing but a collections of T shirt vendors and trinkets. So unless this is what you are looking to locate, your precious time is better spent elsewhere

Took the Riverfront Streetcar to the Ursulines Station (actually we missed the stop and rode by - but then switched cars at the next stop and rode back) and happened across the French Market. Has great food - from various vendors - seafood, gator on a stick, yummy deli sandwiches - you are going to be able to find something... More

You can bypass all the little jewelry and trinket shops. The real jewel here is the food. You can take your pick from several vendors here and have a wonderful meal on the cheap. I had cajun jambalaya from one and a muffuletta from another. If you have made it through your stay without a muffuletta, you can get a... More

If you enjoy flea markets, boutiques, food vendors, etc, this is the place to go. Outside of the Market itself are lots of stores, restaurants, street vendors and performance artists. It's a quick trolley ride from the French Quarter. In fact, before we knew it we had walked back to our hotel on Royal Street at Canal.

This is a bit cheesy, but we had a good time. The first part of the French Market has food vendors and places to buy beverages. My husband and I found some great local spices and coffee at one of the stands. We selected an acoholic beverage and walked through the rest of the market while enjoying our drinks. The... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
