“Fish sellers are gone, but still a tad charming”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

Appeared that the Market was desperately trying to find a balance between local food stalls and souvenir shirts and imported trinkets. A super place to kill time if it's raining, but otherwise, just walking the streets is a better use of time.

“Anatolian Silver - French Market - New Orleans”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

If you love real gemstones jewelry in fine sterling sliver that will last for years - looking as good as the day you bought them- you will love Anatolian Silver. I have been going to New Orleans for about 15 years with Anatolian Silver being one of my stops every time. I have bought earrings and necklaces for myself and friends and family. They are inexpensive and everyone loves them.,

“Just another flea market selling Chinese items.”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

If you are looking for some shopping to enhance your New Orleans experience, you will be disappointed here. Other than just a couple local artists the market is just the same import junk you will find anywhere in the country. The only bright spot is the outdoor bar with live music. The music and atmosphere were good and drink prices were reasonable. Not something that is hard to find in this city though.

“Loved Anatolian Silver!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

My friends and I bought several pairs of sterling silver earrings from Anatolian Silver in the French Market. Hasan Cicek was very helpful and very nice. Hasan has a large inventory and was very willing to help me with my particular requests. He gave us a good discount. Even without the discount, his prices are very good. My friends and I highly recommend Anatolian Silver to anyone looking for a great jewelry buying experience: large selection, customer friendly attitude, and very good prices for sterling silver pieces. Thanks Hasan! I'll be back on my next visit to NOLA.
