I really enjoyed the people watching, and also liked seeing the spectacular antiques and vintage clothes, and visiting Chez Louisette chanson bar. This place is huge, you do need a map to find what you're looking for (there are sections for pricy antiques and for affordable posters, records, clothes, etc), and to push your way through the rowdy street market...

Amazing place. It was our first visit to the flea market and it was overwhelming. Beautiful antiques and vintage couture were my favorite things to look at it. We needed way more time than we had. Looking forward to going back next year

At first, we wasted time walking in front and around this flea market with the usual booths of pirated shirts and shoes. THEN, we discovered that you have to go more inside and that's where you find the cool stuff! The area in the back with antiques is quite quite and in the middle there were so many cool retro...

This place was very, very cool. Just be aware that the first thing that reselbles a markets when you come out of the metro is NOT the flea markets you should be looking for. The first markets you will come to are all those stalls that sell the brand-name knock-offs. Keeps walking and you will find the Marche aux puces... More

Well worth the Metro ride to Porte de Clignancourt, in the Northern suburbs of Paris. Once you have gone past all the cheap stuff, the rappers and bong shops you come across an unassuming arcade. Inside are two floors of antiques, curios, art, records & CDs, clothes and all sorts of bric-a-brac. It took more than three hours just to... More

Usually we hope to do some treasure hunt at flea markets. But at saint ouen, everyone's like a pro here. You can't really find very good deal. The items are ok but I didn't find any extraordinary rare product. As a tourist attraction, it's nice.

Not quite what I expected since I heard that this one of the largest flea markets in the world and was looking forward to all the found treasures. It’s very hard to navigate and you have to endure a quarter of a mile of drifters and shady characters selling stolen phones and designer knock-offs before getting to the heart of... More

I've been here 3 times over the years and each time I come, I have an even better time because I have my routine down more each time. It is easy to have a bad experience here because of the nature of the neighborhood, or not knowing which markets to look in, for example. My favorite is the marché Vernaison,... More

Unless you are an expert and can separate junk from a treasure, do not bother with this place. When you emerge from the metro, you will encounter a dirty city with people trying to sell you fake goods. This would be a thief's dream. Once you walk through a few blocks of "canal bags" and other fake goods, you will... More

Quite an amazing collection of eclectic antiques and brocante. Spent several hours and only scratched the surface. Found beautiful weird pretty and interesting things. Haggle and search. Found some lovely Baccarat and got a good price. Take a coffee in with you as there are few places for a snack.
