A great urban market for small gifts. During the week not as many vendors out as on weekends. A great place to pick up things for the family back home. A good place to munch on local favorites such as alligator, snoballs, shrimp, etc. Worth a hour of your shopping time.

The Original French Market…in the USA. After all the flash treats that NOLA has to offer, you might want to enjoy a local treat and visit the “French Market”. Just steps from the Café Du Monde, the enormous treats begin. It begins with Fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, fresh baked breads, trinkets, clothing, candies… etc. galore. Treat yourself to a NO...

An array of vendors w/great deals for souvenirs for all ages in a range of prices. The Market is sheltered from the sun & there's a cozy garden cafe w/entertainment when you're ready for a relaxing & refreshing break or a bite to eat. Lots of waiters/waitresses who cater to your needs right away. We went back to the Market... More

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
