  • Always a fun time. There is a lot of junk, or stuff you can get elsewhere, but there are also a lot of unique things. We visit at least once a year. Always a good time!
  • Great place for New Orleans treasures including masls, beads, cds, spices. Definitely visit Herrera Enterprise towards the end of the market by the track side. 100% perfume oils at a great price! Try the Michelle Obama for sure! I bought that and the Burberry London scent for $24 total 💜💜
  • A nice place to go if your want to grab some cheep souvenirs. They offer deals on shirts like 4 for 20 where as in the stores your paying the same price for 1. Everything was similar and pretty cheep looking. There were a few handmade vendors, but nothing to go crazy over.
  • Great place to walk around. Food and beverage wise really good. Stands have pretty much same items can find some cute souvenirs
  • very touristy, but great place to get cheap new orleans schwag and people watch and walk around. bring cash
