FESTIVALS & EVENTS
Starts January 9th - Flea Market. 'Puces de Brest'. Puce is French for flea so this is a flea market held on the 2nd Saturday of every month (8am - 6pm) in the streets around the covered market of Les Halles Saint-Louis. The residents of Brest turn out their attics and bargain hunters can unearth odds and ends and the odd gem by rummaging through everything from 1950s gramophones to old records, 18th-century plates, books, clothes and more.
