Frenchmen Art Market
619 Frenchmen St, New Orleans
It’s not an enormous market. It’s not world renown. It’s not packed to the proverbial rafters every Saturday morning. But it is an absolute must visit in New Orleans.
The Frenchmen Art Market lives, funnily enough, on Frenchmen Street. It’s only about a 10 minute walk from the heart of the French Quarter, and it opens nights only – Thursday nights through to Mondays, from around 7pm. It is truly an artist’s market, with everything sold there coming from the talented creative local community, and the added bonus of being located in amongst some of the best live music venues any city has to offer.
Get out of the French Quarter’s main hub for the night, take in a jazz set (d.b.a. and Blue Nile are both great!), and then head over to the Frenchmen Art Market to buy a one of a kind piece to remember your trip by :)
