This place is so great to get a great experience of NOLA culture. The vendors provide fabulous offerings from candles to coasters, and of course any mardi gras beads you could possibly need. The food is amazing as well. Be sure to check it out!

I perused this whole place twice, and bought several items. Everything was at basic Flea Market prices (and somewhat negotiable).

Mostly a touristy souvenir trap. However there is an amazing candle maker who sells homemade candles there. They are called carnival candles and the scents are unique. Also, go to the smoothie shop inside the market. Can't remember the name but you'll know when you see it!

Great food, drinks and lots of goodies to buy for those not lucky enough to be with you!! Did get a tad bit crowded on the weekend but that's what New Orleans is all about .

This location combines the best of both worlds = shopping and food. Not only does it have a fresh market, with fresh fruits and vegetables on one end, but the more you walk into it, there are multiple food locations, vendors of all sorts, and many, many souvenir places !! We didn't have enough time to walk the entire length... More

Didn't do too much shopping here. The wives of course did. They were happy with the selection and prices. The real trick here is to go to the south to the Golden Horse (Place de France) Cross the street to the west go south to Sidney's Wine Cellar get a beverage of choice, go back and sit by the horse....

You can find many unique things to buy in the market. I found some nice semi precious gems set in silver. The food looked and smelled amazing too.

I recently visited NOLA for the first time and stopped in the French Market. It was a really cool little area. I loved the shopping. I didn't get to stop at the French Market Café, but definitely had a blast trolling through the market. Met some great local artists while I was there. Would recommend if you're heading to NOLA.

I was kind of disappointed with this as I've heard that it will take you a couple hours to walk through it all and it took 20 minutes and that's looking at everything that was in there.
