Open air market. Fun and interesting souvenirs for visitors. Cafe to sit down eat or grab something cool to drink.

I would have liked to visit this, but the map in the City Guide had it at Royal and St Ann. It is actually on St Peters, about 3 blocks away. Our remaining plans had us moving further away.

The market has shopping, food, and music. It is a winning combination. The souvenirs are much cheaper than the shops on bourbon st. There are several food vendors. There is also a sit down restaurant with great jazz. It is near Jackson square and a few other sites. I would make it one of the first things I visited.

The market is separated into two parts. The first part has lots of great restaurants and local artists offering food and locally handmade gifts. The second part is little more than a trashy flea market where just about everything is made in Taiwan. If you go, support the local artists. Often there are live demonstrations and lots of things for... More

A lot of items from overseas - just a big flea market type of event. We looked all over the market and the French Quarter to but a little iron pot for fruit but none are sold. Just a lot of stuff from Asia.

The French Market, with its shops and flea market, has lots of displays, stores, and variety. It's true, as other reviewers have noted, that there is a fair amount of duplication in the merchandise, and it's also true that there is a lot of China made stuff, even things from Pakistan. That said, there are also a lot of local... More

Great outdoor flea market with anything you would ever want and often for less than you can buy at a store in the Quarter.
