Street fairs / Flea markets in Vaud

First, sorry if this is not the right section for this question.

Does anyone know of any good resources where one could get information on street fairs / flea markets in VAUD?

By this i mean when and where they are held.

Thanks

Flea markets are called "marche au puces" in French.

Here is a website with some listed markets...just scroll down to Vaud.

Re: Street fairs / Flea markets in Vaud

If you fancy trying lots of local foods and specialities, head for Bulle in the Fribourg/Gruyères region today- for the Salon Suisse des gouts et terroir' - until 21hr tonight, and also tomorrow and Tuesday 10.00 - 17.00.
Morrocco is the officila guest, so lots of Mediterranean flavours too.

Re: Street fairs / Flea markets in Vaud

I am a brocante fanatic. Here's my favorite website: www.vide-greniers.org

Scroll down about a half a page and you will see the various cantons in Switzerland. Click on Vaud. Or, you can click on the map on the right where it says "recherche sur la carte" and search that way.

Vide grenier means attic sale and the quality of stuff is equivalent to a yard sale or garage sale.
Brocante is a step above and will include some antiques and furniture.
