off to Lille for the mother of all flea markets

It’s that time again! Always on the first weekend of September, rain or shine, the gigantic flea market starts tonight in the northern city of Lille. Lucky for us, the weather forecast for this weekend is sunny and warm.

One million visitors from all over the country and from neighboring Belgium, Germany and the U.K. descend on Lille which transforms its city center into a giant pedestrian zone. To give you an idea of previous flea markets, here are two links from previous years (lots of photos.) When I return Sunday night, I’ll post new photos from this year.
