You can support some great local artists here, or you can get some cheap souvenirs made in China. We chose to support a local photographer and buy some of her prints. You won't be disappointed either way. Lots to choose from.

The market offers kiosks and food options for a stretch of a block or two. While it may not be the Bastille Market in Paris this is a nice, quaint market on the eastern end of the French Quarter. It is worth perusing the market...More

I expected something more charming and natural, but rather found loads of stores of cheap plastic trinkets and not a great selection of food. The area wasn’t great for kids - groups of spaced out characters and it was dirty & smelly. I don’t write...More

It's an open air covered market, and there was the usual tons of vendors selling their stuff. Almost every gift type item you'd want, and crafts and plenty of food too. We spent a few hours roaming around.

This is a typical market. Nice variety and plenty of choices. A must visit when in New Orleans. A couple of street performing groups, would have liked to see more. A few homeless but nothing overwhelming.

With a NOLA flare. Some great photography, cheap succulents, yummy food and cute shops to check out. There are also some street performers at times playing their music. It’s a scenic area and I loved seeing it all! One of the vendors told us it’s...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
