The French Market is the oldest city market in the United States. We were there in the wintertime, so I didn't see very much produce. However, there were bunches of souvenirs and gift items. Some vendors have tables out in the open-air area. Others are located in more permanent shop buildings. You can bargain with the vendors in the outside area. There are also several restaurants located at the market. Aunt Sally's Creole Pralines is my favorite shop at the French Market. Their pralines and candied pecans are delicious. They sell a wide variety of other unique products and souvenir items there, as well. Cafe du Monde is located next door to Aunt Sally's.
