The market is home to some of the top restaurants in the city, including the Corner Oyster House Bar & Grill, The Gazebo Café, and Café Du Monde, which opened in 1862. The French Market features two bustling shopping areas including the Shops at the Upper Pontalba and the Shops of The Colonnade, which sell a range of goods from designer apparel to regional fine art and vintage statues, as well as a popular farmer’s market with year-round with endless selections. The French Market also hosts several festivals throughout the year such as the Creole Tomato Festival, the Downriver Festival, and the Harvest Festival.
