An open-air market in downtown French Lick offers a quiet place to browse for a few minutes or a bustling place to hang out, depending on special events.
The drizzly, overcast weather during our trip to French Lick didn't really cooperate for a robust visit to an outdoor market, but we can see the potential in this little collection of shops downtown. A cute gazebo hosts live music on the fourth Saturday of each month, May through September, and little log cabin-style houses ringing the square sell homemade candles, photographs taken in the area, handmade jewelry and crocheted knickknacks for your home. The wares didn't tempt us to buy, and the one teenage shopkeeper we saw during our visit talked on the phone the whole time without acknowledging us, but we can see how special events and a holiday market might bring more variety and sophistication to the mix.
