French Market was a nice place to visit. It's really close to the Mississippi River, Cafe Du Monde, and other New Orleans favorites. My favorite aspect of the market was the fresh seafood stand where you could buy and eat fresh crawfish. In fact, I'd recommend visiting the market if you're not feeling like committing to any one restaurant as you can find all the cajun favorites here.

lots of shopping opportunities, but very flea market feel. There were a few places with live music here and that makes it a worthwhile stop.

I was expecting maybe more local artists but this was more like the flea markets we have in Indiana just with New Orleans themed items. Things were a little cheaper than the shops on Decatur but not by much. We still had fun walking among the stalls seeing what there was. Kids got a snow cone and they really enjoyed that with the heat. Wish we would have came down to the market to eat though a lot of items at the food court looked really good.

You must go here to eat. Some of the best food in New Orleans I had were at the "restaurants" here.
