Author Sandy Price has offered up two copies of The Flea Markets of France as prizes so readers of This French Life have a chance of winning one in an ever so easy to enter competition.
The book takes you by the hand around nearly 30 markets dotted across France and is an indispensable tool for getting the most out of your visit, whether you’re a first-time visitor or an experienced shopper.
Conversational and comprehensive, this guide will tell you everything you need to know about exploring markets all over France.
Descriptions of more than thirty markets and their specialities, as well as practical advice on visiting them, is augmented by notes on regional items, tips on bargaining and collecting, a glossary of relevant French phrases, and a useful rating system which gives an overview of each market.
Much more than a simple listing of French flea markets, Sandy’s warm suggestions of things to do nearby, places to eat, food specialities of the area, and local amenities are complemented by bits of history and cultural observations.
Armed with this comprehensive guide, visitors to France will feel they are in good, reliable hands.
