Despite what people in the south call it, the French Market is a FLEA MARKET. There are rows and rows of tables literally selling the SAME touristy things. Very hot and crowded and their prices were way too high for this type of venue. It...More

Although there were a few talented artisans displaying their wares, most of the booths contained cheap foreign-made tourist junk. However, it is one of the cheapest places to get a NOLA T-shirt.

I was hoping this market would have more unique, local made art. But it's like any other street in a touristy area, it sells a lot of souvenir stuff that isn't necessarily unique. If you're looking for cheap souvenirs, go here. If you want something...More

This is a typical tourist flea market. The usual jewellery, handicrafts and gift stalls. It's still worth a look when in the area, particularly if you are looking for a morning or afternoon tea. It's conveniently located near the wharf area within the French Quarter,...More

This is a great place to grab a “quick” bite to eat and people watch, though quick is a relative expression given the crowds of tourists during prime time. With breakfast, lunch, and dinner options available as well as drinks of all types, it’s a...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
