A fun experience to view everything from bulk candy to antiques of every kind to military surplus to new shoes and clothing. If you are thirsty be aware that sitting at an outdoor cafe means €5 sodas. Bring or buy bottled water, go to a standup/take away vendor. I had a wonderful espresso for only€1.50.

We, Aussies came to buy but have nothing to show for the effort. We love markets but this is a shopping centre surrounded by rubbish market stalls. Would not bother particularly in the afternoon.

We just returned from our Paris vacation and the worlds largest flea market was quite an experience. The official name of the flea market is Les Puces de Saint-Ouen but more known by Les Puces (the fleas). On the metro map we took the RER A (red) train to the Chatelet Les Halles Station and the took the metro 4... More

We spent severals hours here on a Sunday, I think this is a must-see for everyone travelling to Paris. Our favourite markets were Vernaison with all sorts of fantastic and peculiar second hand articles and Dauphin with tons of vintage clothes and books. You can find a lot of information and a very useful map from http://www.marcheauxpuces-saintouen.com/9en.aspx?sr=2 There are a... More

We live in Paris and have made a number of trips to this amazing market. You can find almost everything here, and there is room for a little haggling of price, especially if you pay in cash and are taking the item abroad. Very difficult to see the whole market in one day, but definitely worth a visit if you... More

I love browsing through the flea markets AND the more modern market - take planty of cash. Only problem is so many lovely things and no easy way to get them back to the UK! Well worth a visit - been twice now and love it. Head upstiars in The Marche Dauphin for the best vontage clothes market ever!

1 - This is a weekend market! If you go midweek you find closures, of course. 2 - The "flea market" on the Paris side of the Peripherique is NOT the Puces de St Ouen which is the famous flea market. 3 - You can get to the market by getting off the Metro at Garibaldi as well as Clignoncourt... More

Excellent day out but extreemly expesive way of buying antiques in Paris! If you'e in the know however you 'may' pick up a good deal rather than a bargain! I have contacts in the markets and they keep items for me to see and possibly buy, haggling here is to no avail!

We went on a sunny Thursday around 12.00 pm and the whole place appeared to be shut. Well, we entered from the Gare de Clignancourt end and wended our way past numerous sellers of cheap shoes, t-shirts, souvenirs most of which seemed to have been made in China. Past this the whole place seemed to be deserted with stalls and... More

Very disappointing, and not how I remember it from years ago. Apart from Rosiers, the place is full of aggressive vendors trying to sell overpriced clothing to mainly disinterested browsers. Many of the Rosiers units were shut when I visited on 11.08.13. Worse still are the hordes of young asian men demanding that you buy mobile phones from them..as if!... More
