Overall it reminded me of a flea market that can be found in many other cities around the US or even the world. That said we still enjoyed ourselves and found some uniquely local trinkets. The market runs along the road parallel to the water....More

A great place to visit away from Royal and Bourdon streets. A large selection and unique shops. Not overall crowded on Saturday when we visited.

Great souvenir shopping and food. Had an awesome Muffoletta at The Market Cafe. Cafe Du Monde is also here.
