Since 1987, the Marché Brassens has become the essential destination for lovers of old and second-hand books. A visit to the market is also an opportunity to discover the Parc Georges Brassens, not far from the Hotel Eiffel Blomet.
A book market where you can find rare collectibles
Since 1987, the old book market that takes place on the edge of the Parc George Brassens has enabled collectors and readers to enrich their libraries with various works dating from the beginning of the 19th century to the present day. A multitude of dealers presents a huge selection of books every weekend in a Baltard-style pavilion built in 1897 by the architect Ernest Moreau. On their tables you can find antique, rare, collectible and out of print books, as well as plenty of bargain-priced newer titles. All literary genres and non-fiction subjects are offered, as well as comics. You can also acquire vintage posters, magazines, photos and old maps. Regular literary meetings and exhibitions are organised.
The tranquil appeal of the Parc Georges Brassens
Situated in the heart of the 15th arrondissement, the Parc Georges Brassens covers an area of 8.7 hectares. Opened in 1985, its name pays tribute to the French singer who lived part of his life in the nearby Rue Santos-Dumont. Walk amidst the park’s lush greenery and discover its vineyards and beehives as well as its winding stream, large pond, small bridge and belvedere. An educational garden has been set up for pupils from neighbouring schools.
