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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel – and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Epic Trips, Mini Trips and Sailing Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travellers and friends who want to explore the world together.

Epic Trips are deeply immersive 8 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and enough down time to really relax and soak it all in. Our Mini Trips are small and mighty - they squeeze all the excitement and authenticity of our longer Epic Trips into a manageable 3-5 day window. Our Sailing Trips invite you to spend a week experiencing the best of the sea and land in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.

We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm – and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
