A Rich History
Located in the French Market of New Orleans, Marché offers sweeping views of the majestic Mississippi River, the charming French Quarter, and the downtown skyline. Our space is part of a collection of historically significant buildings that make up the French Market, which dates back to the 1850’s. The French Market was formally known as the Butcher’s Market and is now home to the famous Café Du Monde, the Bazaar Market (now the flea market) and the Cuisine Market, which is the new home to Marché. All of the buildings run alongside Dutch Alley and showcase the charming architecture and historical significance of New Orleans.
Prior to opening Marché, careful restoration was made to the building in order to bring out all of the old French Quarter charms for which the Vieux Carré is known. Hand-applied old world Venetian plaster was added to the venue, and the once closed and unused balconies were restored to offer guests dramatic views of both the French Quarter and the riverfront.
