The epitome of fine wines, Bordeaux is one of France’s most elegant and cosmopolitan cities. Strategically located at the center of a legendary wine-growing region, the vibrant and sophisticated city of Bordeaux is a top culture and gourmet destination. In fact, Bordeaux is the ideal base for exploring neighboring wineries as well as the châteaux of Médoc, St Emilion, and Bordeaux.
Fringed by the largest pine forest in Europe, Bordeaux is located only 45 minutes away from Arcachon Bay and its stunning beaches. The city of Bordeaux’s inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007 and its bold modernism have made it a key destination for everyone interested in French culture, wine, lifestyle, and flea markets!
The Foire à la Brocante des Quinconces is THE appointment of all “bargain hunters” who live in the region. Set on a huge square, this event – which is the oldest flea market and antique fair in Bordeaux & in the Aquitaine region – welcomes twice a year more than 200 exhibitors showcasing a considerable range of furniture and objects, from past centuries to more recent times, in order to appeal to the widest range of potential buyers.
A traditional appointment in Bordeaux, the Foire à la Brocante des Quinconces gathers over 180 000 flea market enthusiasts, seasoned collectors, or just curious passersby from around the region, who try to find the gem or just want to enjoy a day out with their family. And the Foire à la Brocante des Quinconces has so much to offer! From junk, antique, furniture, and books to jewelry, china, silverware, crystal glassworks, and a wide selection of classic and unusual collectible, exhibitors at the Quinconces Flea Market truly have something for everyone.
And those who don’t manage to quench their thirst for vintage and antiques will be able to get their revenge by having a gourmet break in one of the many restaurants and wine booths of the Traditional Wine and Ham Fair, held in a neighboring alley to the Quinconces Flea Market. Last but not least, the banks of the Garonne river provide an ideal place to enjoy the stunning scenery or a pleasant walk.
Open to all public and budgets, the Foire à la Brocante des Quinconces is a highly expected event and an invitation to a journey through time.
