This open-air trading center was designed by architect Joseph Abeilard, a free man of color. Enslaved black people, free people of color, Native Americans and whites all exchanged wares at this location, dating back to the early 1700s. The French Market is still open to shoppers and is one of the most popular attractions for visitors to New Orleans.
