The more central flea markets in Paris are probably more tourist friendly. This is a market for people from Montreuil and tourists. If you enjoy sifting through junk to find interesting things and oddities then this is the place for you. I've found many great things here that i will treasure and tiny amounts of cash changed hands. If you... More

I visited here for a few hours on December 28th. Lots and lots of clothing at the beginning. You must walk far into the market to find other items and even then the treasures are few and far between. Lots of new things -- clothing, shoes, fabrics, watches, socks, jewelry, sunglasses etc., etc. Some vintage books, linens, lace, buttons, etc.... More

My family & I wanted to go to bric a brac market. We would not recommend this to anyone. This market was dirty and cheap (not in a good way). The neighbourhood felt unsafe, lots of graffiti. There was no charm at all which is the opposite to what I'd expect in Paris.

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

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

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).
