Trendy place for a stroll
Much more than just a market, this place is the crossroads of civilisations and fashion. Eachdifferent market has a unique atmosphere. The Marché Vernaison has a rural and picturesque feeling, while the rue Paul Bert is lined with wisteria-covered houses. The leafy patios of the Marché Malassis contrast heavily with the boutiques at the Marché Biron, reminiscent of the splendour of the famous Parisian tearooms. And the Marché Serpette enjoys a muted ambiance with its covered aisles. The recent revival of vintage furniture and accessories has rejuvenated the famous historical flea market.
Les Puces: a truly unique atmosphere
Les Puces has been classed as an Aire de Valorisation de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine (Zone Promoting Architecture and Heritage), making it the only urban site in France to be added to the list because of its atmosphere. For these reasons and many more, the 15 markets – popular with TV, showbiz and political personalities – form another world that welcomes millions of visitors each year.
