Brocante de Grandvilliers

One of the most anticipated event in the year in France hosting over a 1,000 vendors, the Brocante de Grandvilliers has been since the 1990s a collector's dream come true and a bargain hunter's paradise

Just once in the year, the small town of Grandvilliers opens up for a massive flea market. The Brocante de Grandvilliers is such a huge event in this region in northern France, that people come to shop here from all over the country, and further afield like Belgium, the Netherlands, the UK, and Germany. It is a well-marked event in the calendars of anyone who loves to rummage through a flea, or who enjoys collecting antique and vintage items, or just unique curios. This market has been taking place since the 1990s, and it is easy to see why it has become such an anticipated event in the year.

The Brocante de Grandvilliers has space for more than one thousand vendors, making it one of the largest flea markets in the country. It is quite the sight to behold, as vendors literally fill the streets of the town and beyond. With so many vendors, there is definitely a bit of everything to be found at the Brocante de Grandvilliers. Lovely pieces of jewelry are for sale, alongside military memorabilia, vintage clothing, typewriters, gardening equipment, and other tools, cups, chinaware, glassware, ornamental items, telephones, old magazines and newspapers, books, posters, globes and so much more.

At its most full, the stalls can stretch for more than seven kilometers, which is quite remarkable. This makes it almost impossible to view everything within the one Sunday that the market takes place. So to make the most of it, keen shoppers should arrive as close to the 5 am opening time as possible, and wear their most comfortable shoes. One thing is certain – there will be no worries about meeting your walking goals on this market day!

The Brocante de Grandvilliers will tempt shoppers back year after year. With such a wide selection of antique and vintage goods for sale, it is a collector’s dream come true and a bargain hunter’s paradise!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
