Just a bit of advice for those that visit Historic New Orleans French Market. 

1. Do not impulse buy - If you walk the market and compare prices, you will be surprised how much they vary. There are always special deals on the counter or table. Just look for them.

2. Tourist Prices -  Yes, it is tourist targeted and the prices are just that. Again, if you are hungry, look around for a minute before you make your choice.

 3. Variety of Foods - is really unique in the French Market. There are different culture foods, healthy food, good, bad and overpriced food there. Get "tastes" from the stores and use that to make your choice.

Enjoy your trip.
