If you're looking for local artwork, crafts, souvenirs, food, or just a good time, this is a good place to go. The first part of the market is filled with different "restaurants." I tried the mufaletta and it was great! There was also a vendor...More

We didn't try the food. Some of the items for sale was by local artisans but most of the stuff were things you'd find at a flea market. It was worth hearing the jazz band that played across the street, they were excellent!!

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

Is it open on Saturdays? I've been getting contradictory answers. Some people say it's Monday-Friday, others said it's open Saturdays. Anyone know for sure?

Yes, but I don't remember the name of the stop. We took the trolley and then walked. It was good exercise, and very safe. Enjoy!!
