French Market, New Orleans: 31 reviews and 48 photos

New Orleans? French Market has existed in this French Quarter site since 1791 and has remained true to its authentic mission for 200 years. It is America?s oldest public market and to this day plays an important role in the local economy.

Walk up and down the five blocks of specialty retail shops (a great place to find that one-of-a-kind souvenir for the folks back home) and a community flea market showcasing locally made jewelry, clothing and artifacts.

Address: 1001 Decatur St.
Directions: Between St. Ann and Barracks Sts. - far end of the French Quarter

Take the Red Riverfront Streetcar to the end of the line - just cross the street and there you are!
