Liberty National Shops at the French MarketDo you make it a personal mission to find unique souvenirs and fun shopping venues when you vacation? During Liberty National Convention 2014 next summer, attendees will have the chance to shop anywhere in New Orleans. For an outdoor shopping experience you can only have in New Orleans, mosey through the French Market crowds and see what treasures you can find. The shopping district stretches for more than six blocks next to the Mississippi River.

A Unique Shopping Experience

The French Market serves as a symbol of pride and progress for residents of New Orleans. The market has been in existence for more than 200 years and each decade has brought progressive change and notable culture to the area. The shopping center, which is coined as America’s oldest public market, played a big role in enhancing the city’s public transportation system. Traffic to the market pushed the development of a riverfront streetcar*. The French Market hosts several annual events in New Orleans like the French Quarter Festival, Jazz Fest, the Seafood Festival, and the French Market Creole Tomato Festival.

The French Market is a vibrant area in the French Quarter just down the road from Jackson Square. The marketplace is complete with vendors selling everything from T-shirts to pottery. Grab a hurricane or muffuletta to enjoy as you browse. The lively sounds of jazz music and vacationers fill the air as you walk past live bands and cooking demonstrations. Enjoy the fast pace of Decatur Street, or step into any of the boutiques in the district.
