Nice place to take a stroll on a Sunday afternoon. Don't be tempted to purchase high end souvenirs or knick knacks in the local shops - you can find everything here at a discounted price: masks, beads, magnets, sunglasses, fans, etc. There is a nice...More

I know French Quarter is touristy. But I wasn't expecting the French Market to be quite so. I was disappointed in it. I thought there would be more "market" items and what I found was a dirty flea market.

It is a fun place and better than I had expected - there are interesting stalls including ones selling all the Mardi Gras beads. You can eat an alligator sausage - very rich but interesting as well as eat tasty looking foods from other stalls....More

They have a little bit of everything. They have a food area plus plenty of local stuff to buy. Cool little flea market. One thing I like was none of the vendors were pushy which is a nice change.

If you like this sort of thing, you'll the French Market. They've got little of everything: bars selling drinks, food vendor (the place selling alligator sausage is recommended), and vendors selling everything from crafts to souvenirs and hot sauce. I loved just walking around looking,...More

A lot of construction but it was still beautiful. I loved the artists all along the streets! The only thing that kind of dampened my mood was the smell of urine and all the homeless people. I tried to give as much money as I...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.
