Marseille has some lovely second-hand stores and flea markets. Here’s our list of the best, covering everything from charity shops to high-end second hand vintage boutiques.

1. Dépôt-Vente Massalia Shop


This is a second-hand clothes shop in the cool up-and-coming neighbourhood that includes the Cours Julien. Clothes tend to be on the more formal side. Check out Facebook for what’s in stock.
Marseille is a great place for second hand fashion

2. Recyclodrome


This shop has a central purpose to reduce household waste. It’s main focus is on taking in electrical items, repairing them and reselling them. But it also has other household items. It offers house collections if necessary.

3. Lilou Vintage


Lilou Vintage is a fun second-hand fashion shop where you can find hats, bags and jewellery, as well as cool vintage items. Again, check out Facebook for up-to-date details.

4. Marché Centre Commercial les Puces (antiques)


For over 20 years there has been a flea market here. There’s a covered market selling antiques and bric-a-brac, as well as outdoor fruit and vegetable stalls.

5. Humana

Shop, Store

This is a huge place (over 90 square metres) that sells more than 3,600 items of unwanted clothing. It’s less a fashion store and more a charity shop, but it’s a good place to pick up a cheap bargain. All proceeds go to their charity in the Congo, working towards improving the local quality of life.

6. Space Vintage


Space Vintage is a quirky little store not far from the main railway station (St Charles) and the main central Canebière road in the centre of Marseille. It’s a high quality store, selling only the big names as well as collector’s items. It has clothes but also jewellery, handbags, shoes and other items to wear. Well worth a look.

7. Ccom'9


Ccom’9 is a second-hand clothes shop where people take their unwanted clothing to sell. The shop keeps the clothes for three months and the donors get a proportion of the sales price if they sell. The title of the shop is a play on words – com’9 is pronounced “comme neuf“, which means “like new”. They only accept clothing of a good quality and recognised brands.

8. Le Makadam Vintage


This lovely little vintage store is focused more on household items and artistic home decoration. It isn’t open during the week but it’s a great place to pick up some ideas for your home.

9. Mega Vide Greniers


The French love “vide greniers” which means to “empty the loft”. This vide grenier takes place every Sunday by the Hippodrome. Check out Facebook for updates and times.

10. La Coquette

Shop, Store

This place opened 17 years ago, called “Premier Pas” (First Steps). It was a second-hand shop for baby clothes. It has since transformed itself into a high-end used clothing/fashion store, specifically for special events, like weddings. It’s a great place to pick up intricate jewellery, hats, shoes and bags.
