The French Market of New Orleans

Everything about the food and culture of New Orleans in one place.

Few places absorb the local culture and also cater to tourists quite like the French Market nestled at the foot of the French Quarter along the Mississippi River in New Orleans.  From the locally authentic food vendors to the variety of arts and crafts and a few cool surprises thrown in for good measure, the French Market has a little something for every taste, whim or desire. It’s the oldest market in the United States.

The food is a microcosm of the Big Easy. Try alligator on a stick to beignets to shrimp and oysters. Find something just right for anyone. They encourage you to eat your way through the French Market.

Shop everything New Orleans from Mardi Gras masks, antiques, handmade jewelry, t-shirts and so much more.

Once in a while, a local band or two set up on a corner to busk and to entertain you.

Parking can be found northeast of the market and the New Orleans Jazz Museum along Decatur Street.

Don’t miss it!
