Christmas shoppers have a choice of holiday markets Uptown, where they can find that perfect gift while supporting local artists and organizations.

Among the top choices this weekend are Le Marché d’Hiver at Lyceé Français in Leonidas on Saturday (Dec. 10) and the Where Black NOLA Eats Holiday Marketplace at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum on Saturday and Sunday.

Le Marché d’Hiver

In the French tradition of the winter market, Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans will be transformed into Le Marché d’Hiver — a festive experience for shoppers, foodies and families.

Marché d’Hiver will feature local artisans showcasing art and other hand-made and thoughtfully curated items including jewelry, apparel and decor. Local food trucks and restaurants will offer an array of food and beverages.

The Winter Wonderland is set to entertain children with games, inflatables, crafts and face painting. Local musicians, including Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers, and Lycée students will perform throughout the day.

Marché d’Hiver is a benefit for Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans Charter School organized by its parent-teacher organization La Liaison. Proceeds raised will help support Lycée Français.

Entry to Marché is free, but registration is required. Register here in advance to save time at the gate.
