It’s been said that The French Market originated as a Native American trading post along the Mississippi River. Over several centuries, immigrants from Europe, Africa and the Caribbean launched their own establishments there, which to-date includes local produce, art, handmade crafts and one of my favorite landmarks, Café Du Monde, located near Jackson Square. There is no other place for me to go for breakfast to enjoy beignets and a café au lait, definitely, super delicious and super rich.
There are also landmarks that should be included as a must see, eat or go when planning a trip to New Orleans, they are; Bourbon Street, Pat O’Brian’s Hurricane, Jackson Square, a ride in a streetcar, (before Katrina there were three of them, St. Charles, Canal Street, and the Riverfront), a visit to St. Louis Cemetery and voodoo shops, and finally, do not leave New Orleans without experimenting the flavors of Po’ Boys, alligators, Jambalaya, Oysters and pralines.
