The french market is a great shopping spot. There is lots of little booths set up with goods. There are little food shops there as well. The place is all open air with is really nice.

“Good clean fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Jazz breakfast, loved the flea market and all the local artists selling their goods. We loved the street musicians playing while we shopped and ate.

“NOLA Institution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Strolled through the open air vendors and then the brick and mortar shoppes. Open air market is typical flea market wares but the brick and mortar shoppes offer NOLA goods. Aunt Sally's has the best pralines... waistlines be warned!

“Fun atmosphere - true market style.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Alot of different vendors. Many of them are willing to "barter" a little bit. Alot of local crafts as well as nummy food items.

“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).
