Took awhile for vendors to get set up. Mostly the same items repeated. Half food and half vendors. A lot of t shirts and jewelry items.

We walked through the French Market and found that there were a lot of specialty food options along with a lot of souvenir/specialty items.

A nice walk through town leads you to the French Market. I have only visited the souvenir market, which had a good selection and a nice atmosphere.

It’s a farmers market and flea market. Prices aren’t bad. They have a lot of things. They start closing at around 6pm. Check it out if you have time.

While the French Market still has a lot of booths, many have been replaced by permanent restaurants. The food is excellent, but I miss the market where you’d get local art mixed with counterfeit this and that.

I was excited about the reviews describing this place, I was there and got really disappointed: Chinese low quality products, cheap imitations of sunglasses and jewelry. The very few artisans and local food restaurants may be worth visiting. Go to the souvenir shops in Canal...More

Yes it's full of tourist tat, but it's worth a visit. Certainly more pleasant than Bourbon Street. You can combine it with a visit to the water front, Cafe du Monde, and the French quarter streets: Decatur, Royal and Chartres. At the end of it...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

No they are not hand made for that you need to go to Jackson's square which is mostly paintings but there are a few other things just go during the daylight as at night it's tarot / psychic stuff off there.
