The French Market itself wasn't as interesting as I thought it may be, as many of the things being sold can also be found in other shops around the French Quarter. But it was still a nice stop, especially since you can stroll in the...More

So many options for food and great opportunity to look at/purchase souvenirs at a cost effective price. Make sure to stop here when in New Orleans!

We walked around the French market so much to see and buy various kinds of souvenirs! You have a variety of spots to decide were to make a stop to eat and have some drink while enjoying your walk.

There is a lot to buy at the French market, but for the most part, it's the stuff you see at any street market or other touristy-type market - silver jewelry, t-shirts, tourist souvenirs. There a handful of interesting craftsmen selling. A block or two...More
