“Authentic attraction in NOLA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

If you are going to New Orleans and the French Quarter, you should definitely check this place out. While a lot of the vendors sell the typical farmers market stuff (scarves, wallets, purses, etc.) there are a lot of local artisans who bring their wares to be sold. I always find an interesting item here! There are also a few food vendors that serve local cuisine (alligator sausage, pralines, spices).

“A must stop every time we come to town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Always fresh produce and intereting local food items. Great place to get cheap t-shirts, caps and assorted "tourist items". Always changing items and vendors. T-shirts, caps, jewelry, purses, sunglasses you name it you can find it for a bargain price.

“Decatur Street is great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Stroll through the streets and be near the Mississippi...how cool is that?! We had a Mulfetta outside on a roof top cafe, and you must try this sandwich somewhere while there.
