When you come out of the Metro you will find it difficult to see any signs for the market. However, you should see a large general market to your left. Keep this on your left - there is nothing in this market that will interest you and it is the first of many places where you may be hassled -... More

It can be overwhelming, but with fortitude it's totally worth it. Once you pass the clothes and get into the antique area one thing is more beautiful than the next. I really had to talk myself out of this fantastic chandelier (retro 50's). There was just no way I could walk it back to the metro and then get it... More

Enormous flea market! More like a small city. I have never seen anything like it. You could stay a week and not see it all!

What a dump! Suggest that you AVOID! It is pretty much a ghetto. Filthy, rubbish on the streets & pavements. Bad looking dirty people "hanging around" looking for easy targets ( pickpocket gangs & muggers) Could not believe French authorities could allow a place to get this bad. Every second car has been broken into and we did not feel... More

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!
