In a city overflowing with inspiration, it's no wonder hundreds of artists call this country's most European city home. On the last Saturday of each month dozens of artists gather in Palmer Park at the Arts Market of New Orleans to sell some of the most unique art in America. Shoppers can peruse paintings, jewelry, woodworking, photography, ceramics, sculpture, and handcrafted paper products. With such a variety of styles and products, there is something for everyone at any budget. And because it's New Orleans, there's also live music, food and drinks from local restaurants, and a children's tent with hands on activities for the kids that turn this monthly market into a full day's entertainment.
