“Lots of bargains and hand made items.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I really liked the French Market, more like a flea market. Tons of vendors some of the typical tourist stuff, and quite a few vendors selling their hand made wares. There are also food booths, fresh fruit, pastries a little bit of everything. I had some great finds, I spent several hours here for sure. Most of the vendors were very friendly and willing to haggle.

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!
