Vendors have been selling their wares on this spot since 1791, making it one of the oldest public marketplaces in the country. Today, the French Market includes a large flea market, small produce stands, and retail shops. For the daily flea market, dozens of vendors set up tables inside and outside the covered pavillion, selling jewelry, handbags, T-shirts, and curios as well as vintage and used items, clothing, and collectibles. The market generally is open daily from
about 7 to 7, but hours can vary depending on the weather.
