Provence is one of the most remarkable sun destinations in the country and a region rich with the sort of ambiance the South of France is famous for: unspoiled landscapes of undulating vines, slower Mediterranean pace of life, and lovely flea markets! From Pézenas to Carpentras, stopping by Arles and Villeleuve-lès-Avignon, Provence has a long tradition of antique markets.
For those who love antiques and the thrill of the as-yet-undiscovered treasures lurking within a flea market, the Uzès flea market is certainly worth a visit. The reputation of this antique market and its 200 vendors is growing fast, and the area of Uzès is now becoming somewhat known as a go-to point for antique hunters.
Open once a year in July , rain or shine, the Uzès flea market is the perfect go-to destination for flea market enthusiasts who love to hunt for bargains and collectables.
Just like other flea markets in France, the Uzès flea market features a pretty wide range of antiques and second-hand items on sale, which makes it such a pleasure to walk around. From collectable kitchen utensils and vintage trinkets, to large pieces of furniture, lamps, vintage handbags, lace dresses, paintings, old comics, linen and many other household objects and curios, the Uzès flea market is a pleasure to rummage. The icing on the cake? This flea market stands out among the crowd for the excellent prices: the baseline pricing is already pretty cheap, and stallholders love to bargain so it is usually possible to get further reductions on coveted items.
The yearly Uzès flea market has a very casual and comfortable atmosphere. Most of the vendors just place their goods upon blankets on the ground around the square, or use small tables and chairs to make a makeshift display. Shoppers are never hassled or made to feel under pressure for a sale, which means that both shopping and interested window-shopping are both equally enjoyable.
The Uzès flea market is surrounded by many lovely cafés, so refreshment is always close at hand. This charming yearly flea market set in the shade of Plane trees, is most certainly worth a visit.
