French Market

Relationship: Im/migrant

The French Market is one of the first places I've been in the USA because my dad works there. As I stayed there to help him, it was the place that I had the most fun and great experience because I meet people from not just all over the US, but the world. They were either a vendor or customer trying to buy or sell diverse items that were handmade or very unique from elsewhere. For example, my dad is a tailor and a designer so he works with the African fabric to make African dresses and male outfits. It was also the place where I started having my own little business and made my first couple of dollars. That helped me pay most of my bills and my college tuition. I still love to go to the French Market because of how unique it is and I have never seen anything like it before.
