The French Market: After Hours edition is coming to us in 2016. NOLA.com's Greg LaRose reports that the flea market will expand to hours past 6 p.m. in 2016 with vendors "separate and apart" from those during the day.
The French Market is making the move to both "alleviate congestion on Frenchmen Street and parts of the lower Vieux Carré" and boost revenues. It is using the upcoming Crescent Park Bazaar as a gauge for what kind of vendors the after-hours market will have. Between this and the nearby Frenchmen Art Market, it looks like there's about to be more opportunities to get drunk and accidentally spend too much money on hand-made jewelry and artisanal soaps.
