    French Market/Riverfront: Family Fun in the Quarter Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "The Riverfront area between Canal Street and Esplanade Avenue may be part of the French Quarter, but it’s also a world within itself: a vibrant mix of attractions that includes the lively French Market, a riverfront promenade, and a linear park with lush pathways and stunning sculptures.

    Founded in 1791, the French Market is the oldest public market in the United States. Stretching six blocks from Barracks Street to St. Ann Street, it was established as a Native American trading post and at one time was the only legal place in the city to buy meat. Its latest incarnation is that of a culinary corridor complete with countertop dining, a cooking-demonstration stage, and live musical performances.

    Other focal points of the area include the Moon Walk, a riverfront walkway with spectacular views; Woldenberg Park, among the treasures of the Audubon Nature Institute; and the world-famous Café Du Monde, which has been serving café au lait and sugar-laden beignets since 1862."
