Antiques? Not so much. Good stuff cheap? Yes!

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... read 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).

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

This market is in a ROUGH part of town with some VERY dodgy types around but it's all part of the fun and as long as you keep your wits about you this is a fun and gritty place. The first part of the market sells mainly cheap new clothes imported from China, random crap mixed with a few stalls... More

We went here on the advice of a friend. I have NO IDEA what this friend saw in it, but we saw nothing of interest to us. Flea market for sure. Lots of junk and used clothing. Some new fabrics were interesting. We had to be aware of pickpockets here. Often we were brushed against and we could feel strange... More

OMG I wasn't imagining this. I went despite reading bad reviews. Heed all warnings! This place has no antiques or anything interesting. Avoid it unless you are after fake watches and electronic goods.

Fakes, vintage clothes, bric a brac. Nothing of real value. It's not a nice area for tourists, I stayed at the Novotel across the road and the drawback is they start setting up at 5.00am on Sat, Sun and Monday and they literally leave behind a rubbish tip when they leave. This area is in the periphery of Paris and... More
