If you go to Frenchman Street then this is a must visit market. Great trinket shopping and souvenirs! Also a spot to find a scarf at a good price when you visit and its freezing!

This is definitely the right place to go look for that elusive New Orleans souvenir. There are plenty of vendors with homemade goods as well as other things to choose from.

The music was good. The variety of small vendors did not disappoint. The prices for some things were high so shop with a watchful eye.

Definitely worth a look although we found many things to be very overpriced. We didn’t witness hard sell and felt safe.

Not much else to say, however. Souvenir stands, some craft stands, fresh vegetables. An OK place to go on a rainy day.

I googled the words ‘flea market’ and the number one hit was the ‘French Market in New Orleans’. The open-air building offers fresh fruit and vegetable vendors as well as some tempting fast food stalls. But, the majority of peddlers found row after row offer...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
