About Merchant, New Orleans

A merchant is a person who trades in commodities produced by other people to earn a profit. A merchant historically was anyone who was involved in business as long as industry, commerce, and trade have existed. The status of the merchant has varied during different periods of history and among different societies. In modern times, the term occasionally has been used to refer to a businessperson or someone undertaking activities (commercial or industrial) for the purpose of generating profit, cash flow, sales, and revenue utilizing a combination of human, financial, intellectual and physical capital with a view to fueling economic development and growth. Merchants have been known for as long as humans have engaged in trade and commerce. Merchants and merchant networks were known to operate in ancient Babylonia and Assyria, China, Egypt, Greece, India, Persia, Phoenecia and Rome. During the European medieval period, a rapid expansion in trade and commerce, led to the rise of a wealthy and powerful merchant class. The European age of discovery opened up new trading routes and gave European consumers access to a much broader range of goods. From the 1600s, goods began to travel much further distances as they found their way into geographically dispersed market places. Following the opening Asia and the discovery of the New World, goods were imported from very long distances: calico cloth from India, porcelain, silk and tea from China, spices from India and South-East Asia and tobacco, sugar, rum and coffee from the New World. By the eighteenth century, a new type of manufacturer-merchant was emerging and modern business practices were becoming evident.

  • Beautiful sleek bright clean shop... Oscar was personable and engaging, appreciated his conversation and service... Chai was outstanding, super heavy on the desired taste... Great experience...

  • Best coffee you could get in the US. They use Illy coffee beans which is top of the line and known globally. If they could scale up...

  • Coffee was just fine. My sandwich was good but nothing mind blowing. Got the job done. Wife felt the same about her meal. It was quick and convenient.

  • This place is bright, modern yet still essential New Orleans. Big city vibe and cajun accents! It's clean and cheery. The patrons were mostly regulars by my calculations. My crepe was the perfect consistency and the flavor combos balanced each other well. The filling to crepe ratio made my belly very happy. The music was at the perfect volume where you can enjoy it and still talk with an inside voice. Make a point to come here!

  • Awesome latte makes my day ! Friendly staff fresh and clean at all times
