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

There is an enormous flea market in Paris where you can buy leather goods, scarves, sunglasses, handbags and see all of street life. Keep walking as next to it across the road is an amazing antique market selling just about everything. Beware the jewellery though, it is all new and not valuable.

Too much to see in a day, but a great way to browse an extraordinary range of antiques and collectables. There are stalls that specialize in furniture, fine jewelry, sculpture, posters, toys, luggage, silver, photos and more and more. It goes on forever. Always love spending a couple of hours just wandering...and its right off the metro.

If you are like me love to spend a day browsing the shops or hanging out in art and wine festivals on the weekends, than this will be your heaven in Paris. DO be aware of pickpockets. They are everywhere and I suggest wearing your purse underneath your coat or hiding your wallet in some way. Otherwise, just relax and... More

If you like flea markets then this is a place for you. In fact one of the biggest in the world. You can find almost anything here at any price. Watch out for beggars, pick pockets, and pushy vendors. You can not see it all in less then 4 hours.
