Attached to the théâtre du Monfort and running the length of the parc Georges Brassens, the Marché du Livre ancien et d’occasion is an unmissable stop for any bookworm. Whether it rains or shines, there are around fifty book stalls, both permanent and temporary, from the Paris region, or even Belgium and who are loyal to their posts every weekend of the year without exception.
Fans of antique binding techniques, collectors and tourists read at leisure in the covered aisles of this charming hall – whether it is an art book, the complete works of Moliere or a childhood comic. Not to mention Napoleonic pamphlets, worn away by going in and out of pockets, botanical encyclopaedias and albums by the Beatles and Gainsbourg.
Allow time to chat with the booksellers, who are passionate about their wares. And if you happen to be clearing out your attic, make an appointment for a book valuation and you never know, they may make you an offer.
