Bar­gain hunters will love rum­mag­ing for trea­sured goods at La Braderie de Lille, a pop­u­lar street mar­ket that has ori­gins dat­ing back to the 12th cen­tury. Tak­ing place from 3-4 Septem­ber, the fair’s fes­tiv­i­ties kick off on the Satur­day af­ter­noon and last un­til 11pm the fol­low­ing day, with­out in­ter­rup­tion. The all-nighter sees some 10,000 ex­hibitors, in­clud­ing 300 pro­fes­sional sec­ond-hand deal­ers lin­ing the streets to sell an­tiques and bric-a-brac finds. If all that root­ing and rum­mag­ing makes you peck­ish, re­fuel on the mar­ket’s tra­di­tional dish of moules­frites with a lo­cal beer and play your part in the an­nual con­test to see which restau­rant can amass the high­est pile of shells. braderie-de-lille.fr
