The French Market is a tented bazaar just a block off the River Line Trolley stop. All sorts of things can be found here from "Cajun Garlic" to kitschy art... and many jewelry stands and printed t-shirt offerings. Throughout the city, there are many tourist-trap gift shops selling all manner of trinkets. The French Market is no different, except that most items are much less expensive than those from the shops, say, on Canal Street. Why? There is no air conditioning bill to pay since everyone is under a tent.

What to buy: Consider purchasing any of those little gifts for the folks back at the home or the office.

What to pay: Less than most other places.

Address: 1100 and 1200 block of N. Peters
Directions: Take the River Line trolley and ask the operator to let you off at the correct stop... very easy walk from there.
