Sunday Day out in Provence
The Sunday antique market at Carpentras is my favourite weekly antique market. As you may already know, the town of Isle sur la Sorgue is the king of antiques in the south of France. If you are looking for a particular style, period, or piece of furniture etc and have lots of extra cash- then Isle sur la Sorgue is definitely the place. The Carpentras Brocante is more low key. It is a Puces-Brocante (flea market) which means that it’s wonderfully somewhere between a vide-grenier (garage sale) and a brocante (full-blown antique market). The prices are much lower than Isle sur la Sorgue even though there are still many quality items….
