no longer interesting

The Marché aux Puces was an attractive place in the past. No longer. It is not worth going there anymore.

Walking to the market was rather scary, and walking back was worse. There is some vintage furniture and architectural objects, but they are not bargains. The silver was priced higher than the Valts in London. Used Levis are $35E, and there are used electronics that people cannot give to the Salvation Army in the US. Not one merchant said hello...

This market is situated North of the City. You can get here by tube but the route you walk to the market is gross and you do well to avoid the pickpockets who brazenly hang about in groups trying to sell you phones they have just stole from other tourists. Once you get to the market you will very disappointed... More

Loved browsing the booths to see the vintage goods. Wish I lived in Paris - for many reasons - but mainly so I could load up my car with the cool things! The clothing area was a bit of a confusion .... rows and rows and rows of knockoff goods - jeans, sneakers, t-shirts, etc. Most of the vendors seemed... More

You should try to arrive to this place from the St-Ouen station, rather than the Porte de Clignancourt, because there are less crowds and it is closer to marche Paul Bert which is the classy area of this market. Things are really not cheap at all here but you are treated to a lot of things to see. The Cafe... More

We were really disappointed as we thought we'd find a cool market with nice old stuff, instead we found a messy market full of chinese bargains and cheap plastic stuff. Definitely not a place for tourists.

I really love flea markets and this is simply terrible. I absolutely do not understand why it appears on Paris city guides. Please go to Porte de Vanves instead, or to a temporary brocante / vide-grénier (there is one almost every weekend somewhere in Paris).

Spent part of an afternoon here. Scores of booths but very few with antiques...like 6. But if you need a scarf it's only 1 or 2 euros! And many clothing items. More interesting to wander around and observe, than anything else. The area between the metro stop and the actual market is a circus. Avoid it by walking along the... More

Sadly, I have to echo the less enthusiastic reviews of this market. The market is located on the eastern outskirts of Paris. The neighborhood is gritty, with lots of discount merchants along the streets near the metro Port de Montreuil. To get to the market from the metro station, you have to walk east, over the large roundabout, and the... More

We went despite bad reviews on here, not expecting much, but were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. A proper flea market in the vein of Deptford Market (but much bigger). If you're the kind of person who wants high class antiques handed to them on a velvet cushion for ridiculous prices, go to Saint-Ouen. For those who don't mind... More
