Place du Jeu de Balle market

The Place du Jeu de Balle, known as the "old market", hosts the famous flea market every morning. More than 300 stalls offer a range of objects, furniture, textiles and accessories. The market's pleasant atmosphere attracts antique hunters looking for a bargain as well as casual visitors and tourists. All the products on sale are second hand and will also appeal to fans of vintage items. Just like in a bric-a-brac shop, you need to have a good rummage around to discover that rare gem.

To see around

A number of delightful cafes and restaurants are located around the Place du Jeu de Balle. Continue your walk along Rue Blaes and Rue Haute, stopping off in the many antiques, design and second-hand clothes shops. If you get lost in the Marolles district, you may well come across one of the many cartoon strip and street art frescos. At the end of the street, you can admire the Church of Our Lady of the Chapel and, a bit further on, the Place du Grand Sablon. A wonderful panoramic view awaits you at the foot of the Palace of Justice, which is easily accessible via the glass lift in the Marolles on Rue de l’Epée.
