Louisiana is a true melting pot of cultures. Huge Creole and Cajun populations are felt through every aspect of life, and there is no escaping the French, Spanish, Native American and African influences in this state. It all makes for fantastic antique markets like for instance Denham Springs Antique Village in Baton Rouge or dedicated districts like New Orlean's French Quarter and Magazine Street. Therefore those with an interest in antique and historical items will be spoilt for choice at the flea market and vintage fairs in The Pelican State. Always be prepared to spend the whole day - market shoppers are always well fed and well entertained.
