Owner description: I am a stall holder on the antiques market and it is a super colourful place to work and visit. The market is on every sunday from around 8 am, there is a general markey selling local produce and many other things to tempt you. Along the Ave 4 hostages there is the antique market that is open all day, there is a variety of antiques and unique different things to look at and purchase as a souveneer from provence. Each year there are 2 INTERNATIONAL ANTIQUE FAIRS one at Easter and the other is over the 15th August each year when the whole town explodes with antiques, art and wierd and wonderful things to buy and look at. Check it out and come along you will not be dissapointed.

It may sound silly, but this market has now become a MUST-DO for us on every holiday in France. The three river surroundings are delightful, the wealth of antiques spectacular, but it is the vast range of offerings here that have drawn us back. As with many things, the presence of locals is a clue. This place is busy for every open hour, with the pathways and streets filled with people milling through an expansive set of stalls that reaches all through the old town. One thing we learned by chatting with vendors is that they all will attend this market, then go on to various others in the region, but Sorgue is where you will see them ALL.
Here are a few tips we've learned:
1) PARKING is difficult - plan to grab whatever you come across up to a kilometer away. Try across the river south where there is public parking and some streetside.
2) PLAN> This market stretches through a maze of back streets and small plazas. It is best to get a local street map and plan how you will cover it, or you'll find yourself revisiting some areas as you wander and get off track.
3) GEAR> You will end up walking a lot so wear good shoes, and a cloth sack or backpack is a great asset as your purchases accumulate (they WILL)

This market was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. It wended it's way along both sides of the river and then into streets of the wee village. Fresh produce, cheeses, meats, sausage, chicken, cooked foods, linens, lavender, honey, antiques...and just about anything you could think of in a market was there in abundance. It was such a treat to stroll along and enjoy the atmosphere, and pick up a treasure here and there. We stopped for lunch at one of the multitude of restaurants in the town. It was one on the canal, shady, cool...what a lovely spot for people watching. I would definitely recommend this Sunday market.

Definitely loved the market at L'isle sur la Sorgue. It was a busy little market, with a good variety of stands, food, tourist items, clothes and antiques. I found the most beautiful high low skirt for 15 Euro here! My 20 year old daughter even borrowed it after I returned home to wear to a rehearsal dinner. The sellers were very friendly. Some of them even offered to let you try on the clothes in the back of their vans (No, I didn't take them up on the offer) but it was fun to chat with them. The town itself was also beautiful, lots of water bubbling everywhere. It felt so refreshing on a very hot day to walk by the river and canals and water wheels and bridges. What a cute little town! The only problem was to find parking. We finally managed to snag a spot by the side of the road on the way out of town and had to "hike" quite a distance back to the city center.

We recently stayed in Lourmarin and the market was recommended to us for a day trip. This was one of the highlights of our 3 week trip to France... the antique sellers on the street are fantastic and prices are very reasonable... beautiful village also in and of itself, styled the venice of France with water ways throughout
