When it comes to fine and huge Flea Market & Antique Fair, then the town of Ciney in the Province of Namur becomes a must! Ciney hosts one of the largest flea market and antique fairs in Belgium with over 700 exhibitors from Belgium, France, Germany, Holland or even Italy and 15,000 visitors. The fair takes place twice a year over three days, usually around March and October.

What has made Ciney Puces et Salon des Antiquaires famous, is its unique concept of « unpacking at the back of the truck » (the “déballage au cul du camion” in French): on the first day of the fair (Friday), more than 500 trucks gather on the parking of Ciney Expo. Vendors initially leave their trucks closed, and at 2 pm sharp, the gates of the exposition center open to visitors, who then rush as quickly as possible to the trucks in search of rare and unusual objects. This really is the must of the fair!

If you plan to attend Ciney Puces et Salon des Antiquaires we strongly advise you to show up on the first day of the fair, as by the end of the day, most of the best stuff will be gone. On the other days, you will mostly find “leftovers” like bulky or expensive items that didn’t find any taker or objects in a bad condition. Also, the “unpacking at the back of the truck”, the fair’s highlight, exclusively occurs on the first day.

"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."
Nicolas Martin
"Letting luck be your only guide in your search for antiques means taking the risk of missing out on great opportunities. Come prepared with a sense of direction and stop wasting your time. Let Fleamapket guide you."
