“After three years of studying ways to restore the authenticity of New Orleans’ renowned open-air market, members of the French Market Corp. and the City Council broke ground Thursday on a $5 million project to revitalize the French Quarter landmark.

The two-phase project, which will take between eight to 10 months to complete, will include new tenant spaces; renovated and modernized sheds for both the Farmers Market and Flea Market; roof and gutter replacement; newly installed metal awnings and canvas drops; and new public restrooms in both markets.”
