Fodor's Review

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 pavilion, selling inexpensive jewelry, sunglasses, handbags, T-shirts, curios, and food items, like spice mixes and hot sauces. The market generally is open daily from about 7 to 7, but hours can vary depending on the weather.
