New Orleans Flea Markets: More Than Parades, Beads And King Cakes

Intro

When you think New Orleans and Mardi Gras… think FLEA MARKETS, not just jazz, Hurricanes (drinks that is), and Monday morning regrets!

Neighboring the streets where you hear shouts of “Hey Mister, throw me some beads”, sit some of the most fascinating flea markets that further enrich the culture of New Orleans. If like me, you enjoy experiencing more than the large tourist attractions when you travel, you will love going to the flea markets in New Orleans.

Found in a pre-vacation online search for “fleas” to include in our annual trip to NOLA, I was lured to see first-hand why no one wanted me to know about the “flea market under the bridge” in this post by Michael Patrick Welch. Why did no one want me to know about this flea market? I had to see for myself.
