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.

Get to the market in the village of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue as early as possible as close parking is possible. Otherwise, it turns into a zoo and parking will be distant. Fantastic market with so many different and varied products. English is spoken by many of the vendors.

Watch out in the Brocante, they have exposed spot lights sticking out of the most stupid places.... my four year old was so badly burned on his arm as we walked around the very first shop that he had to have emergency medical treatment and spent the entire week of his holiday in agony. So for us NOT a good experience.

Delightful little town, a real island with the River Sorgue flowing around and through, with lots of water-wheels. A great little market, very colourful with a good variety of foods and gorgeous boutiques with clothes, jewellery, local delicacies and products, and good quality local souvenirs

The produce at this market was phenomenal! We asked a vendor to cut up a fresh melon for us. YUMMY!! The town is beautiful. There is a river that runs through the town and keeps the market a couple of degrees cooler that the surrounding area. In fact, there was a boat race when we arrived. So cool to see! Once a year (in early August) they have a floating market. They use the flat bottomed fishing boats to sell from. Great visit!

Isle-Sur-la-Sorgue is a beautiful island city with canals. It is known as the Venice of Provence.
The Sunday market has hundreds of vendors selling cheeses,oils,olives,sausages,soap, as well as,pottery,antiques and second hand goods. The aromas are intoxicating and the variety of different dialects and colorful garb makes for a visual treat.
Its real fame is its emphasis on brocants(antique bric-a-bric). You should collect yummy bits to create a sumptuous lunch,a la picnic ,to be enjoyed on the banks of the river.
There are innumerable eateries up and down the river banks and streets. Canvas-shaded eating areas are decorated with colorful flowers. Old waterwheels belay the successful textile industry which funded the wealth to create the mansions you see.
Most of the architecture dates back from the 18th century. Small independent stores make shopping a breeze. The local church dates back to 1222 AD,has an exceptional baroque interior.
This is a gem in a field of jewels.More a town than a village with tall plane trees and clear green streams.
