If you’re a book lover in Paris, be sure to leave a couple of hours open on the weekend to visit this exceptional used and antique book market.

Nestled in the 15th Arrondissement, the Marché du Livre Ancien et d’Occasion offers a fascinating and eclectic collection of books, maps, posters, and more. The booksellers’ stalls are packed with rare and unusual finds, both in French and in other languages.

It’s also a great place to shop in Paris for bookworms on a budget — you can barter over prices until you get the perfect deal. You’ll walk away with new reading material and an experience that you won’t forget soon.

After shopping to your heart’s content, take a moment to stroll around the neighboring Parc George Brassens. This hidden-gem of a park boasts a miniature vineyard and makes a wonderful spot to sit on a bench and dive into your new books!

Open Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 6pm.
