A visit to a flea market can be the highlight of a trip to France: a lively encounter with everyday French culture, an exciting way to spend a few hours, and a chance to pick up a unique souvenir or add to a collection. Whether a first-time visitor or an experienced shopper, The Flea Markets of France is the indispensable tool for getting the most out of your visit. You'll find descriptions of more than 200 markets and what regional items you'll find there, as well as practical advice on visiting them, including tips on bargaining and collecting, a glossary of relevant French phrases, and a useful rating system which gives an overview of each market.

Much more than a simple listing of French flea markets, the author's warm suggestions of things to do nearby, places to eat, and local amenities ensure smooth travel and are complemented by bits of history and cultural observations.
