Bargain-hunting weekend.

The first weekend of September is special in Lille as this city becomes the flea-market capital of France! This will be a great opportunity to discover the colourful Flemish-influenced town with its characteristic architecture, sign of a rich trading history.

The Braderie de Lille is the biggest flea-market in the whole of Europe and is one of the most popular events on the French calendar. Enjoy your day at the market by hunting for the perfect item, getting some great bargains and of course immersing yourself in local culture. The event always creates festive ambiance and this year will be no different.

Two to three million visitors take over the streets of Lille every year for the occasion, with music and countless activities and events taking place from Saturday at 3pm to Sunday at 11pm.
