The Spring Réderie in Amiens

This coming 22nd April, the city of Amiens will wake up to a festive atmosphere for its traditional spring Réderie! More than 2,000 exhibitors made up of antique dealers and enthusiasts, are getting ready to take part in this huge vide grenier, (second-hand goods sale).

 

 

 

 

 

 

With around 80,000 visitors, the Réderie in Amiens is now considered the second largest event of its kind, after Lille’s flea market.

The Réderies are so famous that visitors even come from as far as Belgium, the Netherlands and England. There's no question of heading out of town for Amiens locals as everyone is here.

 

At five o'clock in the morning, the city begins to buzz with activity and all the excitement of unpacking and getting ready. It's great fun to stroll among the stalls searching for your perfect little piece of treasure. Perhaps it's a comic book, a steel watering can, a rare 45" vinyl record that you thought you would never find or a beautiful cherry table that you spotted that morning in the back of a truck. And when you start to get hungry, everybody will enjoy feasting on roasted meats, french fries and pastries!
