Visiting a Brocante or Flea Market can be the hi-light of any trip to Le Touquet and the Pas de Calais area. The street markets are great places to pick up a bargain or find that rare collectable. Visiting a brocante will give you a unique insight into French culture and can be an exciting way to spend a few hours.
There are around 15,000 Brocantes or “vide-greniers” (literally “emptying the attics”) that take place in communities across France.
In Le Touquet there is a regular Flea Market that takes place most Sundays in the covered market area of the town
