During #LNLConvention2014, stroll the same city streets shoppers did centuries ago to socialize, shop, and enjoy the outdoor market. New Orleans’ market area has existed since 1791, and has prevailed through much change. Historically the market sold everything from flowers to coffee beans, but the modern day market is complete with indoor shopping, restaurants, music, culture, and indigenous foods.

The French Market and Flea Market are both open seven days a week. At the Farmers Market visitors can find fresh produce and quaint cafes. The local Flea Market is home to more than 200 vendors where travelers can pick up a souvenir for a loved one or score a piece of swanky jewelry for themselves. Indulge in some of Louisiana’s original cuisine in one of New Orleans’ most historical areas.
Look around at the artists hard at work, hear a local band performing on the streets, or learn from a local chef during a cooking demonstration on the prestigious French Market Fare stage*. What will you be shopping for at the French Market?
