This place is daunting. I have been here many times in the past, but I don't bother any more. The Metro station is the first place to be wary of. Unless there is a police presence, be very careful. I have seen many thefts take place here. No fancy bags or expensive looking jewellery. Keep your money well tucked in... More

If you are hoping to find some antique furnitures, low priced gems or vintage clothing and bags, don't bother going! The prices are generally set quite high, and not so much "antique". A lot of stalls were just selling new clothes, sport shoes and leather bags, with a price I can get in any local shops. Although the place was... More

Loving antiques, I had to come here. I am glad that I knew about the cheap market stalls before you get to Les Puces because I wouldn't have known to keep going under the overpass. It is easy to get here by metro, you just have to walke a few blocks. You also have to walk authoritatively past the men... More

Yep, it's a huge, diverse Flea Market! There are many different streets and alleys. Some are very nice; with actual antiques and good quality objects d'art. Other stalls are just garbage. And everything in between! The public restroom in one of the 'lesser' areas I visited was horrible and filthy. Unless Flea Mkt is your hobby, don't do this.

If you are in Paris in a weekend, go to this market. It is located at Montmartre, near from the Sacre Coeur and very near from Porte de Clignancourt metro station. The neighborhood is not the best but the people show respect and understand well if you say "No, merci" if they are trying to sell you all kind of... More

The biggest flea market in Paris is call Clignancourt (pronounced “Clee-nyahn-cour”) and also known as Le Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen. I came here with Remy, one of the make up artist 2 years back and finally we are back again this year as this market only open on weekends which for the past few trips, we are not around... More

Yes, there are undesirables as you enter the market area....and yes there are some cheap flea market stalls in the beginning. But, once you get into the heart of the flea market, it really becomes an Antiquity market. Coming from Canada, there was the opportunity to see things we rarely see in our "new world" country. There were some stunning... More

Anything from vintage fashion to extravagant antiques, paintings, books, music, all wrapped up in the adventure of negociating prices and trying to figure what is original and what not. Watch out, you might think you have a priceless object, but it might just be fake. Advice: negociate your way through the market and you might end up getting cool stuff.

We walked to this market from Montmarte and had to go past the crap and rubbish of a secondary market set up on the outskirts of the proper flea/antique market. Having travelled much in Asia we know just to ignore these touts and it was a welcoming arrival at the antique market and notice security at each entrance not letting... More

I was really excited to head to these markets and was advised by hotel front desk staff to be very careful with wallet/money. Once you exit the Metro, you have pass through all these frightening and agressive people trying to sell you cell phones, Channel perfume, sunglasses and etc. The markets were really geared towards folks looking for serious antiques,...
