A little bit of everything, plenty of food, drinks, art and home made crafts. Music from local musicians - you can just sit and relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

Fun to walk the French market and see all the vendors out and get a feel of an Nola. There is lots to see and good food and drink available for a rest stop.

Originally a Native American trading post before European occupation, the French Market has been a hype to draw tourists. The elongated building along the Mississippi River contained various stalls selling fresh produce, food and drinks, clothes, souvenirs, etc. There were events like cooking class, music...More

of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
