brocantes/market trader


Recommended Posts

I have just found a supplier of goods at trade prices and would like to eventually open a retail outlet. However, my plan is to test the water by beginning by selling at brocantes and then hopefully graduating to a market stall and then.....
Does anyone know:- Q1 Do I need permission etc to sell at a brocante? and at markets? Q2 How do I find out when and where the brocantes are?
Maybe there is an organisation to whom I should put my questions?

Thanks in advance

There are French magazines that list forthcoming brocantes. Aladin is one, it has a web site that includes lists of events (http://www.aladinmag.com).

I am pretty sure that you need some sort of licence to trade at brocantes and markets. Knowing France, exactly what you need wil probably vary between regions, even between markets.
