It is nice open air market, many stands of souvenirs, handmade artifacts and food. You can spend 45 minutes walking through the market. I think it might be cheaper than the shops when you buy souvenirs.

Oh My Goodness this place is somewhere every tourist should visit there’s a little bit of everything here. There’s food (beignets/gator/etc), souvenirs, art and soooo much more. Visit the French Market!!! Enjoy

Really great place of little stalls with very unique or hand made products. Great local food products. A variety of items highlighting New Orleans. A special shout-out to Oscar's of New Orleans and It's a Wrap - both amazing jewelry vendors.

Really good market. Had very nice stuff with, of course, a lot of junk. But that’s the fun of it. One of the better outdoor markets we’ve visited. Found numerous items to take back home and place on the mantle. There is something for everyone...More

Worth a walk thru if she are nearby, but mostly import Souvenirs with NOLA printed on or Mardi gras colors. Nothing special and hardly anything hand made in New Orleans or even Louisiana. Daylight hours only, the vendors pull out at night. Don't go after...More

All I can say about this place is that it truly is a tourist trap full of useless stuff that I had no desire to purchase. I'll never be back.

A lot of cheap junk being sold. Food venders were a little more interesting. If that's your thing, go ahead. I'm in no hurry to go back.

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

No they are not hand made for that you need to go to Jackson's square which is mostly paintings but there are a few other things just go during the daylight as at night it's tarot / psychic stuff off there.

On the weekend the market is very busy. Show up early to avoid the crowds. Have fun!
