A HISTORIC SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
With a $7.4 million renovation project finished, the historic, open-air French Market along Decatur Street is ready for a fresh wave of visitors. For over 200 years, the historic French Market has been an enduring symbol of pride and progress for the people of New Orleans. While the Market has existed on the same site since 1791, each new decade and governing flag has brought dramatic changes to the Market and helped to secure its special place in the hearts of the people of New Orleans.
What began as a Native American trading post on the banks of the mighty, muddy Mississippi River on the site chosen for the City by the French, has become a cultural, commercial and entertainment treasure which the Crescent City proudly shares with the world.
Today, America's oldest public market has assumed a leading role in
the local economy as well, providing consistently increasing revenues
for city government while putting millions of dollars back into the
local economy. This historic treasure is just blocks from Maison DuBois, book
