French Market – New Orleans dates back to 1791 when it was a Native American trading outpost. Renovated and re-purposed multiple times over the years, it now stands as a simple market full of tasty treats. It’s a great spot to listen to live jazz while chowing down on muffuletta sandwiches, hot sauce, pralines, and sipping an Abita beer before wandering around.
