Sunday Morning Brocante Flea Market in Carpentras

Contributor blog post by Vaucluse Dreamer:

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know that one of the things I love most about France is the chance to spend the weekends pottering round some of the fabulous local ‘brocante’ markets.

In the Summer, the weekends pass by in a blur of Vide-Greniers in local villages and the more professional brocante markets that take over the streets of the small towns near us.

…Continue reading here for Julie’s photos and details on the Sunday morning brocante in Carpentras and what you can expect to see even during winter months. The flea market is held every week on the Parking des Platanes right behind the Tourist Office in the centre of town.

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
