Two Saturdays Left for Louche Puce Market

DOWNTOWN AURORA - Have you heard of the two hardest words to say in Aurora? Pronouncing “Louche Puce” is only half of the fun on second summer Saturdays when the local flea market comes alive in downtown Aurora.

For only two more Saturdays, Water Street Mall will once again fill with collectibles, vintage treasures, retro items, vinyl LP's, antiques, music, and activity.  

Aurora’s Louche Puce (flea) Market (pronounced loosh pyoose) brings a festival of furniture, glassware, ceramics, ephemera, architectural salvage, restored and reclaimed toys, costume jewelry, vinyl records, books, vintage fashions, objets d’art, objects of curiosity, and more.

Dozens of vendors line the pedestrian-friendly Water Street Mall with their wares, while local musicians play for tips, and FreshGround Roasting brews up fresh coffee.

A festive community event, Louche Puce Market takes place on Water Street Mall, the tree-lined, brick-paved alley between Downer Place and Galena Boulevard just a block east of the Paramount Theatre.

Louche Puce Market is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on August 10 and September 14.  

Find Louche Puce Market on Facebook. Interested vendors can contact organizer Jeanne Norris at (630) 844-3224 or email
