Jefferson Parish Shopping Guide

Shopping in Jefferson Parish


There's a reason Jefferson Parish is the shopping capital of Louisiana. With four major malls, specialty shops and boutiques, you won't have any problem spotting great finds here! Plan a day of shopping complete with a food court and specialty shops unique to the New Orleans region.

Don't miss the opportunity to shop locally at our farmers markets where you can visit local artisans and farmers. Shop for yourself, but don't forget to take back great gifts and souvenirs to share with friends and family.

International travelers can take advantage of Louisiana Tax Free Shopping, receiving a refund on sales tax spent. See a video on how it works here.
