“Also a nice Sunday flea market. Here's how to find it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

Sunday midday there's a nice flea market on the outskirts of Carpentras in a lovely tree-lined parking lot. It has a combination of art, antiques, and bric-a-brac. Websites that mention it say “Place des Carmes“ or “parking des Platanes,“ neither of which worked on our GPS or Google maps. We found the market at the junction of Av. Jean-Jaurès (D942) and Av. du Comtat Venaissin (D4).

“Lots to see, truffles in the winter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

This market takes over the little town. Its half farmer's market and half fly market. Carpentras is a very quaint Provencal town with nice architecture and ambiance. Check out the candy shops, there have some beautiful fruit candy.

“Friday market in Provence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

This open air market covers all the town of Carpentras from 8 am to noon. It is really colourful. You can find nearly anything. The prices are definetly lower than in Isle sur la Sorgue
