A few unique food stands at one end of market but the rest was similar to the flea markets that you find at many Caribbean ports that buy Chinese goods made to look like local goods. Would not waste time going there.

This was one of my favorite locations. My wife and I visited daily for bargain deals. Pay attention to the street shops. You can find similar bargain deals for half the price at the market.

There are many crafts and things to look at. Some are mass produced and not worth much, but there are great handmade and organic products there if you look long enough.

A true tourist trap - it's basically a NOLA flea market. Inexpensive and cheap trinkets. A waste of time unless you like flea markets.

Food vendors are out of this world. Delicious and diverse. The goods market is disappointing with basic touristy things.

Lots of vendors. Great if you are looking for a mask. Some cute and unique items. People seem to often play jazz around it. Specialty boutique shops around it are a bit pricey, but it was a good time. Glad we went

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.
