Small fun and pleasurable flea market under a roof. Many different types of merchants selling their Wares we had a fun time probably take just about an hour to complete. Good place to buy souvenirs.

Where we’re from, they have a market almost exactly like this, so we weren’t overly in awe of this. However, this is the perfect spot for New Orleans trinkets, local food and live music. There’s a LOT of walking depending on where you park, so...More

This historic Market is similar to a huge indoor / outdoor flea market with vendors selling both novelty items and food. Most are selling very similar souvenir items, but there are some that are unique and intriguing. We stopped and had a phenomenal crab cake...More

Had a good time here. If you are into shopping - this is a must. Found items not sold in the regular souvenier stores. Also you can grab a quick bite or snack. Roasted corn was outstanding.

Row after rows of stalls selling stereotypical New Orleans items made in China. Fight your way through the overweight tourists to get a look! Listen while a stallholder berates and pushes you to buy something no-one possibly wants. As others have said, the flea market...More

We didn’t even realize this was here when we stumbled across it while walking. The market had row after row of vendors selling souvenirs along with other crafts and local items. It was a great find and we were able to buy some inexpensive souvenirs...More

Open air market with crafts and art, food and trinkets. Everything New Orleans can be found here. Make time to wander around and take your time, you never know whet gems you might find.

There must be several hundred vendors here. It was very enjoyable to walk around and find unique gifts and souvenirs. Prices seem to be negotiable, so haggling is normal. It's an open air market.

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.
