Shopping in New Orleans

What gay doesn’t love a sale?

Voodoo Authentica (Cultural Center & Collection)

Supposedly this is the real deal Voodoo—dolls and rituals and all that. You know, you mess with voodoo and you get what you deserve.

The New Orleans Art Market

Held the last Saturday of every month, this event is organized by the Arts Council. Support local artists and pick up a (non-tacky) souvenir.

The Bywater Art Market

On the third Saturday of every month, the Bywater Art Market opens for business. Not everyone can display here, so it keeps out the junk.  

Second Skin Leather and Metal Company

Leather, leather and more leather. Also toys. Fill up on your fetish and then go enjoy your night.

Rab-Dab

Pick up some new flashy wardrobe pieces ranging from fancy wear to underwear at this trendy boutique.

Freret Street Market

This market, held on the first Saturday of the month, is part art show, part street food, part flea market. There’s usually live music for those who don’t shop.

French Market

“America’s Oldest City Market” has seen better days (specifically do to the crap in the flea market) Come for the history and stick to the farmers’ booths.

Faubourg Marigny Art & Books

Drift off into a fantasy world while reading the gay literature that populates this bookstore’s shelves. Or just stare at the pictures.

Crescent City Farmers Market

Here is the best place to get local fruits (not that kind) and vegetables. This one is on Saturday; there’s another on Tuesdays on River Road at Uptown Square.
