This huge city of antiques oozes character and charm. Little buildings brimming with European antiquities go on for blocks and blocks. Go in the nice weather and watch shop keepers play chess outdoors accompanied by their trusty pups. Incredible variety of goods. Something for everyone.

Yes there are cheap stores along the fringes but the interior has so many wonderful antique and vintage finds that you can be sure to take home some special little piece of Paris.

After reading good reviews on Trip Advisor and Time Out Paris we thought this would be a good way to spend a couple of hours...we were wrong. The area was dirty and felt as if we were being lined up as robbery victims. Of the time we spent here the market area we saw was awful and it just looked... More

What a disappointment this place is. I was expecting loads of antiques but it was 99.9% t-shirts,jeans and tat you find anywhere. The only antiques are at the western end.

We read about this market in a tourist flyer and decided to have a look. It's easy to get to by subway and bus. There is a stop very close to the start of the market. But keep going north and you'll find out how truly large it it. Having said that we did find that much of the stuff... More

We spent hours here wandering through all the antique shops. There is so much wonderful stuff to lust after, even though most of it was unaffordable. The furniture was stunning and I loved some of the beautiful industrial pieces. We ate a couscous in a basic but very good Algerian restaurant nearby.

This is a great market and well worth a visit. We had a lovely morning wandering around the market and chatting to the vendors! However we had just one bad experience when we walked into one of the small stalls selling materials, lace, curtains etc!! The middle aged guy, who I assumed owned the stall was horrible!!! I have never... More

Antiques, and things that look like antiques. Saint-Ouen is a melange of the two. This is the place to rummage around for who knows what? Sometimes it is hard to tell. The shops are full of authentic antiques, and some clever knockoffs. Buyer beware... It’s not all old. But it is a lot of fun. Be sure to browse through... More

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
