A visit to a brocante (a french word for flea market) can be the highlight of a trip to France: a lively encounter with everyday French culture, an exciting way to spend a few hours, and a chance to pick up a unique souvenir or add to a collection. We selected below 20 of our favorite flea markets, with a mind to diversity in location, price range and wares. But these are just a start. Enthusiasts may also wish to check out the many periodic fairs and “vide-greniers” (basically, “emptying the attics”) that take place on a less frequent basis in communities across France.
