What to expect: A street filled with vendors of all kinds...tacos, t-shirts, records and more.
Why to go: It's a flea-market prowler's dream. Work on your bargaining skills and score some major deals on everything from picture frames to furniture.
Additional info: The original Maxwell Street Market closed (quite controversially and politically) in 1994 after 120 years of greatness. The second incarnation was on Canal Street since 1994. It moved to the current location in September 2008.
