“Foods and Flea Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Food stands with lot's of local dishes. Flea market for cheap sun glasses, purses, jewelry, etc. as well as some local crafts. Always try to bargain for a cheaper price is what we were told by locals, but it never seemed to work for us...Maybe we just were not good at it.

“Has funk, soul and charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We were here on a Friday and were entertained with live music and dance and just gave us a warm feeling of the French quarter. Lots of knick knacks to buy, fresh seafood and Cajun food stalls and seating area.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

Surprised The French Market is ranked so low. It's historical and has something for everybody. Fresh foods, books, crafts, jewelry.... No trip to New Orleans would be complete without a visit.

“Fun time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The vendors were colorful, friendly, and helpful. Most items were very similarly priced from vendor to vendor.

“shopping and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

What more can you ask for...the French Market has great buys, people watching and food. Be sure to look around and find the best deal. Stop at one of the food places and talk to the locals. They will tell you some good tips on food, shops and bands. We had beautiful weather and it was a pleasure visiting.
