Great Autumn Flea Market in Amiens

Great Spring Flea Market in Amiens

On Sunday, 6 october 2019, Amiens will wake up in the festive atmosphere of its traditional autumn réderie, or flea market.

 

 

 

 

The Amiens flea market (or junk clear-out) has turned into the second biggest event of its kind, beaten only by our Lille neighbours’ braderie, with over 80,000 visitors.

 

A flea market Sunday means 51 streets taken over by second-hand dealers who have flocked in from Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Canada, Italy and even Australia !

 

From 5 am onwards, the city is in the grip of feverish activity as 500 professional second-hand dealers, French and of other nationalities, and 1,500 private individuals from the whole of France start unpacking their wares and setting up stalls that would not look out of place in Ali Baba’s cave...

 

What fun it is to stroll among the stalls in the hope of ferreting out THE ultimate “gem”: a comic strip, a zinc watering can, an elusive vinyl 45 or that pretty cherry-wood table glimpsed the same morning on the back of a truck. And when the pangs of hunger set in, old and young alike tuck into barbecued meat, chips and Viennese pastries !

 

A day in Amiens there is no excuse for missing !
