Fun Times at the French Market

I love a good artisan market and hunt them down when we travel.  New Orleans has one along the river on the edge of the French Quarter.  We visited twice during our trip.  The first time was Christmas Eve and then again on a Monday. Each time we found different items.

As usual, the market has t-shirts, souvenirs, art, music and food.

Daughter and I shared a chocolate crepe for lunch on Christmas Eve from the Crepe Cart.  She says she shared with me, really I paid $6 and got two bites but it was really good.

Husband went with a gator Kabob for his lunch.  There is even someone shucking fresh oysters in the market. There are small table sets to eat at if you purchase food at the market.

We bought an hand-painted oyster shell Christmas ornament.  A couple of pairs of earring and Daughter had a bracelet made that she wears daily.  And we took some Italian Christmas cookies back to the room for Christmas Eve treats.

And my favorite frozen drink listening to the band play across the corner.

The French Market is open daily from 10am -6pm.  It is an easy walk or you can take the Riverfront street car.  More information here: https://www.frenchmarket.org/parking-directions/
