The Brocante de l’Automne de Margny-lès-Compiègne is one of the largest and most important flea markets in the Oise department in northern France. It has been taking place and making sales since the 90s and has become such a staple yearly event by now that locals start looking forward to it and making plans for it many months in advance. Because of this, it is extremely well organized, enthusiastically supported and is a day to step out and enjoy the community feel, as well as the superb items and bargains that can be found.

A very pleasant mix of people can be found at the Brocante de l’Automne de Margny-lès-Compiègne. Some are determined antique and vintage hunters, arriving as soon as tables are set out with their offerings (sometimes even earlier) to have first look at the treasures on display. At these early hours, serious deals are made and many collectible items secured by antique enthusiasts! Other visitors attend for the social time, as this is a day when the whole community is outside, gathered along the same stretch of road. It is the perfect day to catch up with the neighbors and chat with the friendly vendors, many of whom set up at this flea year after year.

More than 500 stallholders set up shop at the Brocante de l’Automne de Margny-lès-Compiègne, and their tables spread out over more than 3km of streets. This is a lot to see in one day, and perhaps only the most ardent bargain-hunters will have the stamina to check out every stand at this flea! Most visitors will take a relaxed approach, strolling from stall to stall and filling their bags with favorite items spied among the hoards. Serious collectors should not be shy to seek advice and get pointed to the stalls that house their most desired items, as all the vendors here are more than happy to help out a fellow antique lover in need!

"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."
