This is a great place to buy fine sterling silver and gemstones. Hasan Ciecek was our salesman and was very patient as my wife shopped and we talked about world travels and restaurants. We had looked all weekend for a nice Fleur De Lis necklace and he had a great selection. They were good quality and sturdy. We will be... More

The French Market in the French Quarter is worth a trip. It contains produce markets, flea market stands, and cafes. A must see while there is Oscar's of New Orleans. He makes his own jewelry that is colorful, unique, and reasonably priced. Browse, buy, or stroll through; you can enjoy the French Market on all 3 levels.

We heard so much about the French Market that we had to go down and check it out. It was a big disappointment to me. I was expecting more local arts and crafts. It appeared to be mostly imported junk.

Disappointing to say the least. Not much different to any other "flea" market I've been to worldwide except this was most unauthentic.

We visited the market a couple of times. It is like most flea markets with a New Orleans twist. T-shirts masks and beads dominate one end of the market. There is a food court with po boys, jambalaya and other cajun specialties. There are also lots of places to quench your thirst.There are also many loca artisans displaying and selling... More

I love the French Market! This was our first stop when we arrived in NOLA. Even though it was Thanksgiving Day, they were open on their regular hours of operation. The French Market is easily accessible from the French Quarter. We got there via a Streetcar. Buy you could also hail a cab or a carriage or just walk to... More

If you love flea markets and shopping, this is a must. Great bargains on trinkets and souvenirs. They also have nice silver jewelry, scarves, masks, etc. They also have great deals on food and drinks. Cheaper than in the restaurants and bars.
